More wonderful NEWS - I am proud to announce that I will be making my return to Central America in 2018-20. Fresno OMPT will NOW be bringing it's year long orthopedic manual seminars back to rural Guatemala for a more large scale Humanitarian effort.
Fresno OMPT has officially partnered with the Hospital Regional de Occident en Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, as well as the Comite Olympic de Guatemala for 2018. These two facilities, in addition to several other smaller private clinics in the surrounding area will offer 6 evidence-based seminars over a 12 week period during the year of 2018.
This is the second International Humanitarian Project that Fresno OMPT will be undertaking in 2018. Similar to the East African project the Central American seminars will cover current concepts in orthopedic manual therapy and movement science for the treatment of spinal pain. Instruction will be provided for FREE to a select group of Guatemalan students and clinicians.
The Long Term the Project seeks to produce a sustainable orthopedic manual therapy educational group of volunteers in Central America and eventual branch out to neighboring countries such as Nicaragua and El Salvador in the up coming years. Fresno OMPT's mission is to provide and teach current concepts in orthopedic manual therapy to an underserved population of healthcare providers in Central America. #volunteer #love #give #help #humanity #children #centralamerica #guatemala #humanitarian #physiotherapy #movement #culture #life #smile #iphone #photography #drevil #worldtravel #thanksgiving
