DPT Students Serve in Uganda

What a blessing it is to serve! This summer a group of nine George Fox Doctor of Physical Therapy students and three faculty/alumni leaders traveled to Uganda, treating hundreds with injuries and disabilities.

It’s the sixth year the DPT team has made this trip and the results have been life-changing: Children who were once wheelchair-bound can now walk. Adults with painful injuries from years of hard work receive relief. And the George Fox students who take part in this experience grow exponentially as clinicians and service-minded leaders.
