UTMB Students Volunteer in Peru Clinic

Over the winter break, three students from SHP participated with nursing and medical students in a trip to Lima, Peru where they provided access to healthcare in an area where it is limited. SHP students included third-year students Rashmi Anandampillai and Kristi Wolkenstein from Physical Therapy, and first-year student Kyle Callahan from Physician Assistant Studies. During four clinic days, eight medical teams collectively provided healthcare to approximately 125-150 individuals per day. The PT students saw about 25-30 individuals each day.
