This June I went on my second trip with STAND. It was another great experience meeting colleagues, exchanging ideas, and giving back. For those of you unfamiliar with STAND, it is a non-profit organization focused on establishing rehabilitation services in Haiti. Physical therapists have started and continue to run this organization. It is a great opportunity to give back to those in need. Check out some of my previous posts for more information!
After this trip, I had the opportunity to share my experience with Talus Media. Talus Media is a physical therapy news media company. They have are active in social media and have two podcasts. I was one of many STAND interviews that provided a glimpse of life at STAND’s clinic. I encourage you check all of them out! An orthopedic therapist, a general medicine practioner, a pelvic health therapist, a wound care therapist, a pediatric therapist, and even a student therapist discuss their experiences. I discuss neuro and other things in my podcast. Founders Morgan Denny and Justin Dunaway discuss STAND in a concluding post.
Hopefully these get you interested in volunteering! I definitely would recommend you sign up for this awesome experience!
