I have worked at Novant Health Charlotte Orthopedic Hospital since September 2018. While working for this organization I have had the opportunity to see the success of copious amount of orthopedic surgeries and the impact it has on individual’s overall well-being. Orthopedics improves ones quality of life and allows patients to become more autonomous in his or her care. One of the greatest rewards is to be a part of a patient’s progression from immobility to functionality.
Being involved with Opwalk will provide me the opportunity to be a part of people’s journey to improved quality of life that would not normally be afforded that chance. In addition, I will be able to partake in complex care case, as many individuals have not been able to receive proper preventative medical care. This opportunity would allow me to expand my knowledge of orthopedic care while enriching the life’s of the less fortunate.
