UNE in the News

Seven UNE PT student volunteers highlighted in story on Partners for World Health

Seven UNE physical therapy student volunteers were highlighted in a Sept. 2nd Bangor Daily News story on Partners for World Health, an organization that gathers medical supplies from hospitals across Maine with a promise to sort them and redistribute them to areas of need both domestically and overseas.

In the story PT students Kristen Brooking, Ryan Hill, Ashley McOsker, Patrick Robichaud (back row photo) and Kristi Stalsbroten, Karen Bartling, and Gia Calabrese (front row photo) spent the morning helping organize the latest hospital giveaways in exchange for a load of supplies for their own purposes. 

As part of a school project funded by a grant from the UNE’s Center for Excellence in Interprofessional Education, the students are launching a 10-week program next month, titled  "Life is Sweet, Move Your Feet," to help recently diagnosed diabetes patients in the area improve their health and wellness at a Medically Oriented Gym.
