I am honored to have each of you supporting me on my first global health service trip! Together you have helped me raise 66% of my goal, that's See More

THE STORY:

My name is Megan Hillmann. I am a second year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) student at the University of Washington and the Vice President of Global Rehabilitation Organization at Washington (GROW). Through this nationally recognized student run global health organization I have been accepted to volunteer in Zacapa, Guatemala for a week in June of 2016.

More than 40% of Guatemala’s population does not have access to healthcare services, and there are an estimated 0.9 physicians and 1 hospital bed per 1,000 people.

I am appreciative for this opportunity to apply my 10 years of education in Spanish, physical therapy, and psychology to serve this community. I will be working interprofessionally with physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, and prosthetists and orthotists. We are collaborating with a local and sustainable health care organization, Hearts in Motion (HIM). HIM’s mission is to provide quality medical care for the people they serve throughout Guatemala and Central America. In Zacapa I will train local health care providers and provide physical therapy services to individuals throughout the region without access to this type of care.

Can you help me get there? My goal is to raise $2,500. Funding will go directly toward my travel expenses (the program fee, airfare, housing, etc.) and the physical therapy/medical supplies I will bring to Zacapa. More importantly these funds will be helping provide equitable physical therapy services to the people of Guatemala. Please consider donating. Any amount, no matter how small, is helpful! Thank you!
