Volunteering is a Rewarding Experience

Volunteer Tori Frost describes her volunteering experience providing mentoring and a workshop.

“My recent volunteer work through TFA was my first time in Vietnam, and I had a great experience. At Dong Nai General Hospital, I had the pleasure of working with Ms. Phuong and Ms. Hien (two physiotherapists who are taking on the additional role of speech therapist as well) to assist in further developing their recently formed speech therapy unit. One of the things we did was a presentation for the doctors and nurses of the hospital regarding the role of the speech pathologist and when to refer for services – later that week, we had a new outpatient referred – a small but rewarding success! I also provided a dysphagia workshop at UPNT to the graduates of the speech therapy training program. I can’t imagine being a speech pathologist and then also taking on an additional role as a physiotherapist or otherwise – so I think it’s amazing that doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, etc. are taking on dual roles to also work as a speech therapist (sometimes with limited training). Thank you to everyone for welcoming me and for the great time in Vietnam!”
