We Want You! Physical and Occupational Therapist Volunteers!

You have a chance to make a difference.  The Confluent Health Family of Physical Therapy companies: ProRehab- Evansville, ProRehab-LouisvilleTexPTS, BreakThrough Physical Therapy, and Physical Therapy Central are collaborating with, Healing Hands for Haiti, Team Canada Healing Hands, Team Ange, The Community Coalition for Haiti, and other NGO's (non-governmental organizations) to provide a sustainable physical rehab clinic in Jacmel, Haiti.  All licensed physical and occupational therapy professionals are invited to join. 

We are sending teams of physical and occupational therapists to treat and teach under a sustainable solution that involves four strategies to "Build Haiti Better":

  1. Acceptance: We work closely with and are embraced by the local medical community and political leadership.
  2. Employment:  We will provide rehab technicians and support staff with jobs and we will stay in local guest houses where we expect to pay fair rates for room and board.
  3. Education: Our goal is for our rehab technician training program to be diploma granting.  In the meantime, we will teach as though it already is.
  4. Healthcare:  We will provide free physical and occupational therapy and work with our partners who are providing physicians, nurses, and others who provide free medical care.
