SAHP Entry Level DPT Haiti Mission Trip Summer 2017
Haiti is the land of my roots and a place where my heart lies. Growing up, I had the privilege to both see the beauty and turmoil of the land. It was difficult understanding how much struggle could exist in such a beautiful place. I believe it was then that I was impressed to someday return to Haiti and make a difference. However, I was at a loss as to how I could make any difference. Fortunately, with my introduction to the field of physical therapy came the realization that there are several opportunities to use my newfound knowledge and abilities to help others. As such, this mission trip to Haiti is a perfect opportunity to fulfil this calling.
classmates and I are excited about the opportunity to serve on this mission
trip to Haiti through the Doctor of Physcal Therapy Program at Loma Linda
The primary goals and objectives of this trip include:
1. Patient care at Hopital Adventiste d’Haiti
2. Provide physical therapy at Chanje Lavi Rehab Clinic at Hospital Adventista d’Haiti Teach Con-Ed course to Rehabilitation Technician Graduates
3. Teach Con-ed Course to Rehabilitation Technician Graduates.
4. Assist with a local Orphanage Project
I believe it is my duty as a Christian to use the skill sets and knowledge I have gained through studying PT to help those in need. Moreover,I am honored and humbled to serve my fellow countrymen.
Thank you for your support,
