In November 2013, St. Marys native Dakota Carpin, a nursing student at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, had the opportunity to take part in an optional medical mission trip to Nicaragua. The trips are traditionally well attended by students in RMU's nursing program, he explained, because they provide a chance for students to improve their assessment skills while also allowing them to see firsthand the differences between healthcare in Nicaragua and the United States. For Carpin, the trip ended up serving a greater purpose—it helped him find what he believes to be his life's calling.
