Since 2005 Hands of Bolivia founder, and one of the only five chiropractors in Bolivia, Dr. Rusty Firestone has been partnering with several chiropractic schools all over North America to provide chiropractic care to Bolivia. Dr Helmer Velez, the only current Bolivian-born practicing chiropractor in the US, has been a great help to get doctors of chiropractic, and chiropractic interns involved with these projects.
