Lindsay in St. Lucia

Lindsay in St. Lucia

My two-week global health rotation in St. Lucia was an amazing experience.  I had the opportunity to work in outpatient and inpatient physical therapy, as well as complete home visits and visit a senior citizens’ home.

This was such a great experience because I was challenged by working in a new culture as well as being challenged to be flexible and see all kinds of diagnoses throughout my experience.

I would recommend the global health experience to all students!  I think this gives you a heart for your given profession and strengthens your skills.

Lindsay Dean is a D.P.T. student in the class of 2010. Her husband Mike works at DMU and they live in Indianola with a cute lab mix, Dallas. She enjoys music, exercise and being outdoors.

In August 2009, she will travel to St. Lucia and work at St. Jude’s hospital where she looks forward to experiencing a new culture, treating patients and bringing new ideas to the physiotherapy staff.
