Midwest-based AthletiCo Physical and Occupational Therapy will hold a medical supply drive at all AthletiCo locations throughout the month of January to support Global Medical Brigades on a medical mission trip to Honduras. Global Medical Brigades, a sector of Global Brigades, is an international student-operated volunteer organization whose mission is to provide sustained healthcare relief to underserved communities throughout the world.

WHAT:    Medical Supply Drive
WHEN:    Month of January 2012
WHERE:    All AthletiCo Physical Therapy locations

The supplies collected during the drive will be distributed to the patients and communities in Honduras on the mission trip this April. In addition, AthletiCo and its employees will also hold fundraising events to help purchase additional medical supplies and offset the volunteer costs of the trip. All AthletiCo facilities will have a drop box in their clinics to collect the needed supplies. The supply list can be found at http://www.athletico.com/GMB and in all facilities.

This is the fifth year AthletiCo and its employees have been involved with Global Medical Brigades.
