Angela Buehner (center), a third-year doctoral student in the Program in Physical Therapy, and Cheryl Caldwell, assistant professor of physical therapy, create a splint to alleviate a patient’s wrist pain while working in a clinic in Teupasente, Honduras, in January. Buehner and Caldwell were among a group of 40 students and faculty from Washington University who went to Honduras as part of the University’s first trip with Global Medical Brigades, an international organization that provides communities in developing nations with sustainable health care. The trip was organized by WUSTL undergraduate pre-medicine students.
