MELISSA MENDES, PA-C | Mission Trip – Tanzania

“Mission work is the reason to be in medicine. It’s an opportunity to share from our abundance and be pushed beyond our limits.”

KRIS ANDERSON, OTR, CHT | Mission Trip – Nicaragua

“These mission trips have been so meaningful for me as a way to share my knowledge and skills
in hand therapy. The hospital in Leon does not have any occupational therapists, and the physical therapists and patients have been grateful for the teaching, splinting and treatments. My personal connections have grown and I have made a lifelong connections.”


“I’ve made nine mission trips to Honduras. It has been a great team to work with. There is such a need for affordable, good health care in Honduras that I can’t say no. The improvements to the hospital have been great to see.”

EVA MARTINEZ, PT | Mission Trip – Nicaragua

“Mission work is not only an incredible learning and culturally fulfilling experience, but it creates such a sense of happiness in knowing that you make an impact in someone’s life. We bring experts and equipment (surgical tools, braces and exercise equipment) which can make all the difference. These experiences have changed my life and helped me create amazing friendships.”
