Hello! As many of you know I am going to school for Orthotics and Prosthetics. I have always wanted to help people on a more personal level which is why I choose this path. I have been wanting to do a trip like this for awhile and just havn't had the opportunity, until now!! I am super excited to be able to fit, fabricate, and modify orthotics and prosthetics for people! I am fundraising for the cost of the program and for my flight to Quito as well! Thank you!!!
This program gives volunteers the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with practitioners from ROMP and Fundación Hermano Miguel to provide world-class prosthetic care and physical and occupational therapy to Ecuadorians with amputation who otherwise do not have access to these services. Volunteers will serve through an intense clinical week at the world-class Fundación Hermano Miguel rehabilitation facility. They will play a key role in remobilizing Ecuadorian patients and exchanging knowledge and skills with local practitioners.
