In celebration of its 25th anniversary, Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO) recently revamped its Web site to reflect the organization's volunteer history. Physical therapists (PTs) who have volunteered with HVO are encouraged to submit their photos and stories for consideration for publication on the Web site.
HVO also is holding its third photo contest. PTs can submit photos from any time period and any HVO site over the past 25 years. If you have images that are not digital, you may submit a high- quality scan of the image. The guidelines for submission are available at this link. The deadline is September 15.
In June, APTA's House of Delegates approved a proclamation that recognized HVO's 25 years of contributing to the advancement of global health initiatives and health care provider education in developing countries around the world.
