Vail Summit Orthopaedics physician assistant (PA) Jennifer Phillips recently traveled to Honduras on a medical missionary trip with a nonprofit organization called Summit In Honduras. The group included 3 MDs, 1 PA, 1 RN, and 5 EMTs or MAs. "We spent 5 days seeing patients around La Entrada." The group also spent two days at an orphanage seeing children and the employees, two days at a clinic in La Entrada, and 1 day at a village ten minutes outside of La Entrada seeing villagers.

"I did orthopedic exams for the 3 days out of the orphanage and did many joint injections." The first photo is Jennifer prepping a patient for a knee injection and the second is from visiting the Copan Mayan ruins. Jennifer works with Dr Peter Janes.
