September 8, 2013: September 8 is World Physical Therapy Day - an opportunity for physical therapists all over the world to raise awareness about the power of physical therapy to keep people fit, active and independent across the lifespan. 

To celebrate, Move Forward Radio is airing two episodes profiling physical therapists and students of physical therapy who have volunteered their services overseas to provide much needed care in impoverished countries.

Part 2: Serving Those in Need through Physical Therapy

Physical therapist Efosa Guabadi and physical therapy student Stephanie Irwin recount their experiences volunteering in Central America, where people will come from far and wide for medical attention at satellite village clinics.  Due to high demand, time with patients is often brief, but the impact can still be profound - both for the patients and their care-givers.
