The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.
Rotary established the recognition in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships.
Dr. Anderson, Dr. Grzywa, Dr. Dominick and Dr. Spencer all took part in Wright Medicals Mobile lab in October. Our doctors continue to expound on their expertise and continue in excellence in total ankle joint replacement.
Dr. Anderson and Dr. Spencer have received national awards in ankle reconstructive surgery and total ankle joint replacement.
Douglas R. Dodson, DO, FICS, a joint replacement specialist and a founding member of the New Mexico Bone & Joint Institute, participated along with 25 other professional physicians, mid-levels and nurses from USA to provide free medical and surgical services to the community living in Oloitokitok area in Kajiado County. Oloitokitok is approximately 255 kilometers by road, southeast of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. The free medical Camp was set up at Oloitokitok Sub County hospital. It started on 14th September 2019 and ended on 20th September 2019 and within this period, the medical team together with the hospital staff managed to attend to about 1000 patients and performed 41 surgeries.
Dr. Dodson, who has participated in several medical missions, believes strongly in assisting those less fortunate and who are in critical need of medical help even if they are halfway around the world.
“My life has been blessed and God has given our medical team members certain skills that improve the health and quality of life of others. This is our way of giving back and to hopefully inspire other people to do the same.” Dr. Dodson said.
