Athletico Hand Therapist, Shelia T., OTR/L, CHT recently traveled to Tegucigalpa, the capital city of Honduras, on a medical mission trip with Global Health Outreach from May 27 to June 3, 2023. During her time in Honduras, Shelia had the opportunity to impact the lives of many by leveraging her skills as a hand therapist to construct custom orthotics and braces for those in need.
The Athletico Cares Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to serving Athletico employees and communities, was proud to support Shelia’s trip with a grant, in addition to a generous fundraiser hosted by Athletico’s St. Louis region.
During National Physical Therapy Month in October, Athletico celebrates our talented physical therapists for their dedication to helping people overcome challenges and live pain-free lives. This month also marks Global PT Day of Service on October 8, where physical therapists from around the world come together to make a positive impact on the communities they serve.
