Hands for Hope

To coincide with our cover story "Doing Good While Doing Well" (August 22, 2011), ADVANCE asked physical therapists and student PTs who volunteer their services to Jefferson University Hospital's Hands of Hope program in Philadelphia, PA, to talk about their pro bono experiences.

We spoke with Christine Wade, PT, professor, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital,  Megan Mackiborski, PT, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and Amanda Morina, PT, Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

I also have been doing pro bono PT services to clients that are jobless &/or have lost health benefits, sports injured students,the elderly, friends & neighbors since 1997. By word of mouth several people have sought my services, surprised to find out that I don't charge, with much appreciation. It is most satisfying & rewarding. Listening to your video has caused me to think of helping at a women's & general shelter, since I cannot get a position in any setting here in Longmont, I can still be helpful & useful in my community.
