THE STORY:

Thanks for visiting this page!!!


My name is Kei Takamura. I am currently a 3rd year Masters of Science Orthotics & Prosthetics student at Loma Linda University in California. I have been studying hard and practicing my techniques to become an excellent clinician in the near future. I believe that this is the first step in my life goals which includes providing care to the underserved in an international setting.


For this trip I will be joined with other Loma Linda University MSOP students to provide prosthetic care to those who are underserved in Guatemala this coming September 2017.  THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!!!


I need YOUR help to serve this community out in Guatemala. Any sum can be beneficial because this is not something I can do alone. Lets work together to bring prosthetic care to those who are underserved out in Guatemala!


If you have any questions about this project, any questions about my visions and goals, or if you just would like more information about what it is I will be doing please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you all for your time and consideration!

ROMP DESCRIPTION: 


ROMP believes in the power of education to transform the unequal distribution of prosthetic care in the world. Every year, ROMP Ecuador hosts clinical trips with leading orthotic and prosthetic practitioners, faculty, and students to facilitate a knowledge exchange between these individuals and ROMP's local staff.

 

Under supervision, practitioners, students, and ROMP clinicians work side by side with real patients in our Guatemala clinic- exchanging ideas, sharing clinical techniques, and working to improve patient outcomes. Educating future clinicians to the realities of disability care in resource poor settings makes them better medical professionals and advocates. Exposing ROMP staff to the latest clinical techniques makes them better clinicians resources for our patients.

 

It is a win, win for all involved. Each dollar raised will help ROMP continue to deliver high-quality prosthetic care. By donating to your "someone", who is involved with ROMP, you are helping create mobility for thousands of amputees living without care globally.

 

Please contact us at info@rompglobal.org if you or your institution would like more information about this innovative program.
