DirectConnect provides educational opportunities to professional people who provide specialized care to people in need. These may include, Doctors, Nurses, Physical and Occupational Therapists. Also mental health professionals and those who work with the disabled and elderly.
This is accomplished by providing subject matter experts that are able to conduct seminars and training in the host country, or by bringing the local professionals to the United States to participate in training opportunities here.
Helping those who currently are working in these fields, by upgrading their professional qualifications, can translate into better quality of care and quality of life for individuals and communities.
