Bringing OT instruction to Haiti

Alvernia University occupational therapy (OT) professor Greg Chown has traveled and lived all around the world. This winter, he spent time instructing Haitians on hand injuries, trauma, burns and splitting.

Before the trip, Dr. Chown’s Alvernia OT students donated supplies and prepared splint packs. (Look closely at the first image to see the splints and casts made by the students in Haiti. Dr. Chown is in the middle, wearing maroon.)

“This was certainly an incredible and eye opening experience,” said Chown. “I worked and met with other clinicians from Notre Dame and other amazing organizations. I also visited a small clinic and witnessed amazing work, but also patients with unbelievable conditions (too graphic too describe) and living in dire conditions.”
