Since 2004, Dr. Brooke Riley, PT, DPT, has continued the legacy of her mentors, Dr. Karen Sawyer, PT, DPT, and Dr. Michelle Brown, MPT, DPT, by providing physical therapy services to those who are unable to afford private care in rural Jamaica. Dr. Sawyer and Dr. Brown still to play a vital role by making annual visits to Jamaica to help in the clinic and serving on FOR U’s board.
Working alongside Dr. Riley are Dr. Bethany Wolf, PT, DPT and Dr. Caitlin Day, PT, DPT. The FOR U team treats patients at a local health clinic run by the Catholic Diocese five days per week. They also perform home visits as needed throughout the parish of St. Elizabeth
Patients are asked to pay a nominal fee or are treated free of cost if unable to pay for services rendered. All equipment used is donated through volunteer medical teams from the U.S.
This program would not be possible without the continued support of Drayer Physical Therapy Institute of Hershey, PA. Drayer has financially supported FOR U’s physical therapists since 2007.
