Members of Rotary Club of St. Helena (CA, D5130) and Rotary Club of Quito Equinoccio (Ecuador, D4400) are in initial discussions and communication to partner to create a two-year Ponseti Method training grant in Ecuador.  It is estimated 440 babies are born with clubfoot each year.  The developing project would provide comprehensive Ponseti Method training of 12 orthopaedic surgeons and the establishment of 12 Ponseti Method Reference Clinics.  Three experienced PM trainers will serve as instructors and mentors.  Additional partner organizations include:  Ponseti International Association Latin America (PIA/LA); and orthopaedic societies – SCCOT, SLAOTI, SEOT (Ecuador Orthopaedic Society).
