Mission Director Brian Walker shows off the latest innovation for Rotaplast to a local volunteer, a 36 page Spanish-English phrasebook. Sally Weissinger of Berkeley, California was on previous missions in Venezuela and Peru and saw a need.

The phrases are conveniently divided into sections for each speciality from registration to clinic, surgery and recovery. It also includes photos of surgical instruments with English and Spanish names.

Jennifer Swar from the Rotaplast office assisted with the production of the booklet. As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention and we are anxious to test out this latest idea. Thank you Sally and Jennifer.
