After taking 2012 off from medical volunteer trips, I'm back at it! This time...Panama. Even more exciting, I'm going twice during the summer of 2013 and with groups from Samuel Merritt University (SMU). I am very excited to be part of an interprofessional team of health care providers and students from SMU including DPT students and alumni. The April trip (Apr 26-May 3) will be visiting the Ngabe-Buglé region of Panama, while the August trip (dates not yet confirmed) will visit the Eastern part of Panama.
I'm raising funds to cover my in country transportation, housing, and food so I can provide much needed physical therapy to villages in Panama and supervision of physical therapy students providing physical therapy services. Please help out if you can, I would really appreciate the support.
