Gannon DPT students have partnered with CHOSEN Inc. to develop a durable medical equipment exchange program - but they need your help

Through this program, students will travel to Mexico in June 2022 to extend CHOSEN services, learn social responsibility and positively impact the health of the community around them.

As part of the trip students will repair, clean, and properly fit medical equipment including walkers, wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, and medical braces for community members who otherwise would not have access to this necessary equipment. Students will also provide physical therapy services to patients in a community clinic, including pain management, wound care, wellness checks, and more.

By making a gift, you will help offset costs associated with this trip including transportation to and from Mexico, accommodations, hospitality, and more. The cost per student is roughly $1,500, so your generosity in helping to defray this cost is truly appreciated.
