Let's Get Ready!

Last night we had our final group meeting before our mission. Volunteers from Brigham and Women's Hospital, New England Baptist Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital were in attendance. Dr. Thornhill gave a warm welcome to all of the new volunteers and thanked the returning alumni for their hard work and dedication.

We learned of a few changes that will be taking place this year. We will be performing more Total Joint Replacements than any previous mission. To that end we will be operating from Thursday through Monday, often performing bilateral procedures. In addition, we will be moving to a newly renovated wing of the hospital which promises to provide a wonderful home for our patients both pre and post-operative.

Roya Ghazinouri, Ellen Fitzpatrick and the rest of the Coordinators will be traveling down to the Dominican Republic slightly earlier than the rest of the group which is scheduled to arrive April 10th. We are all eagerly awaiting the mission which promises to be one of the best yet!
