Trinity School of Medicine Alumni Spotlight: Dr. Kendra Allen, MD

Trinity School of Medicine has always prided itself on the strength and ambition of its students. So many of our future physicians come our way looking for something new; whether that's a unique learning environment built on support and a strong relationship with the faculty, a curriculum with an emphasis on clinical skills and service to patients, or just a fresh start. In this next edition of our alumni spotlight, meet Dr. Kendra Allen, chief resident of family medicine at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. 

After graduating from Emory University, Dr. Allen was looking for two things from her immediate future: a path into medicine and a chance to study abroad. The opportunity to travel and Trinity's focus on student development and helping students meet their full and perhaps previously unrealized potential caught her eye, and she found herself soon packing for St. Vincent.

Trinity School of Medicine "Kid Companions" Fights Local HIV/AIDS Stigma, Plans Visits to Bread of Life Orphanage

In February of 2016, Trinity students founded a new group to provide mentorship and friendship to St. Vincent's ophan population. The organization, led by Trinity student Diane Freeman, has since established an extensive program of companionship and mentoring that caters to the children of the St. Benedict Children’s Home.

Shirley Samuel, who now functions as co-president of Kid Companions along with Emily Satkovich and Camille Olechowski, explained that the organization; while still concentrating on the St. Benedict Orphanage; had also formed an association with the
Bread of Life Orphanage, a facility that houses children diagnosed with HIV/AIDS or whose parents have died of AIDS. 

This facility has been in existence in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for over thirty years, and is run by Catholic Carmelite Sisters. It is home to children between the ages of one and eighteen. The children attend preschool, primary and secondary school and beyond while living at the orphanage.
