During the university’s winter break, Gannon Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) students made a trip to Valladolid, Mexico to provide free physical therapy sessions with Chosen, along with helping paint and clean a rehabilitation center.

While they were there they also had the opportunity to honor Professor Matthew Caster at his memorial in Valladolid. He lead a ramp-build service with 2022 graduate DPT students to provide accessibility at a local church. We’re grateful to all the students who donated their time and effort in Mexico.
