A week spent in Honduras to volunteer on a medical mission may seem like a short time to make any real difference, but to PPMA Members Neal Kramer, DPM and Lee Sanders, DPM, it was the right amount of time to open their hearts to the people of La Entrada and initiate the healing process. It was the patients in Honduras with their genuine expressions of gratitude and being alongside other medical professionals that made a lasting impression for these two podiatrists; so much so, that these former 1974 classmates from Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine say without hesitation, they will volunteer again in the future.
Drs. Kramer and Sanders chose to concentrate on diabetes and related lower extremity complications, including chronic wounds. They provided training to the local doctors, nurses, and public health officials, as well as their own team consisting of one ER physician, one periodontist, one wound care nurse practitioner, three RNs, a neonatal nurse practitioner, and nine non-medical support volunteers who just wanted to help others in need.
Dr. Lee Sanders has been an ABPM Diplomate since 1979.
