Zacatecas & Guadalupe

The Global Health team of Dr. Hutchinson, Andrew Bracken and Rebecca Johnson had the chance to travel to Zacatecas and Guadalupe, Mexico in December of 2019. This trip evolved from a meeting with our local Mexican Federation and partnership with Globus Relief. They were greeted with much hospitality and support from local government, particularly the mayor of Guadalupe, Julio César Chávez Padilla. During this site visit, potential collaborators expressed the interest in shoulder arthroscopy training for both orthopaedic attendings and residents, medical school lectures, virtual and hands-on training, hand therapy and performing cases at the government hospitals. We look forward to future trips to Mexico to treat patients and engage in knowledge exchange. Gratefully, Dr. Burks is considering a mission trip when we are able to re-engage after this pandemic.
