In this episode I speak to physical therapists Dr. Justin Dunaway and Dr. Morgan Denny co-founders of STAND: Haiti.  STAND was founded in late 2014 in order to create a growing system of rehabilitative medicine in northwest Haiti. With a focus on education and creating local clinicians, STAND brings medical practitioners, including PTs, prosthetists, orthotists, and general medical practitioners, to Port-de-Paix, Haiti to provide treatment for the people in this region. STAND is currently in the process of creating a curriculum specific to the needs of NW Haiti that will become part of the local nursing schools’ educational programming. These lectures on orthopedic rehab medicine will be based on STAND director’ five years of experience treating patients in the country and created in conjunction with Youngstown State University’s PT faculty.

In this episode we talk about:

*Their latest trip to Haiti.

*Their successful Kickstarter campaign to create a short film about the STAND experience in Haiti.

*The history of STAND.

*What the volunteer experience is like.

*Some really extreme patient stories and what the patients sometimes have to do to get to the STAND clinic. 

*What they need in the form of donations and volunteers.

As you will see in this episode their passion for physical therapy and their work in Haiti is infectious!  If you are in the medical field I hope this interview will inspire you to volunteer with STAND.  If you can't volunteer please consider making a donation. 

Thank you for listening and stay Healthy Wealthy & Smart!
