Bridging Cultures

Hope, fear, patience, hospitality, satisfaction, education…

These characteristics are found worldwide. Following the call to serve, the Sisters, physicians and volunteers of Avera traveled to Haiti and Zambia to change people’s lives, but instead, were forever changed. Their personal mission trips revealed the common feelings, behaviors and values grounded in all cultures. Discover how these cultures share similar values as you, your family and the health care community.

Exhibition will run: Jan. 28 – April 21
