Welcome to our blog! We are a group of UNC PT students, professors, and alumni traveling to Guatemala for a service-learning trip at San Pedro Hermano hospital in Antigua, Guatemala. This is the second international service-learning trip for the UNC Physical Therapy Division and we are excited about this great adventure! We will be giving educational presentations and working alongside our Guatemalan colleagues to treat patients at the hospital. We will also visit a new community health center in rural Guatemala to provide education to the physicians and nurses there about common musculoskeletal conditions. We leave April 27 and will return May 5. Check back with us then for daily updates on our trip!
