Trek to Nepal
As part of our continuing support of O&P care in Nepal, we are taking another trip in October of 2021. We are opening this trip up to all professionals and volunteers in the O&P field.
The trip will be an exploratory service trip. We will spend some time visiting and assisting Nepalese O&P Clinics, while we tour this amazing country.
Our primary goal is education. As travelers you learn about the country while in turn you will be asked to impart your knowledge to the orthotic and prosthetic community in Nepal through a group presentation. We will all learn and all enjoy.
Tour popular sites in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and more
Visit Nepalese prosthetic clinics and connect with your colleagues from across the world
