Better Mobility. Better Hearing. Better Health.

In May 2020, students and faculty from the University of Cincinnati will travel to southern Mexico to provide physical therapy, audiology, and medical laboratory services. We will work closely with our community partners of the Palace Foundation to help many individuals achieve better mobility, better hearing, and better health. Please join us in this effort by making a donation that will be used to purchase the following supplies:

-Wheelchairs, walkers, and shower chairs
-Braces, orthopedic insoles
-Hearing aids and hearing aid batteries
-Test strips for glucose and cholesterol checks

These supplies will improve the lives of the over 1,000 individuals we expect to serve during our week-long service trip. With better mobility and less pain, many individuals will be able to continue working to provide for their families. With hearing aids, children and adults will be able to stay connected with their loved ones and enjoy the sounds of life. With additional information about their glucose and cholesterol status, many individuals will be empowered to make diet and activity choices to improve their health.

Thank you for considering to join with us in this effort that is described so well in the motto of the Palace Foundation: "For the love of helping others."

If you are interested in providing scholarship support to defray the costs of travel for the student members of the team or would like to donate supplies and/or medical devices, please contact Anne Lemieux ([email redacted].edu) or Brian Earl ([email redacted]).
