Herb Mishke introduced our Health Day speaker, Dr. Peter J. Daly, an orthopedic surgeon.  Dr. Daly graduated from the University of Notre Dame and Mayo Medical School.  He is certified in orthopedic surgery and sports medicine.  He has published extensively and  currently  practices at Summit Orthopedics.  He has held leadership positions in several metro hospitals and been listed yearly as a Top Doc in Mpls- St. Paul Magazine since 1997. His topic for us today was an introduction to Holy Family Surgery Center in Honduras.  He and some colleagues founded the center and it has made a great difference to that very poor community.  The group has seen over 13,000 patients and preformed over 1800 surgical procedures since 2008.  Dr. Daly and his entire family have volunteered on a regular basis in Honduras.  The hospital is part of a large orphanage and serves kids as well as adults.  The need, however is extremely great with 3000 patients on the surgical waiting list.  His stories of several of the  patients and how his team helped them was very inspiring.  Dr. Daly invites anyone interested to come down and experience the hospital and lend a hand to the community.
 
Thank you, Dr. Daly for an interesting talk and for the several thoughtful questions posed by our Rotarians.
