"Case Study of a 40-Year-Old Patient with a Below-Knee-Amputation due to Uncontrolled Diabetes in Rural Belize" by Hillside’s Rehabilitation Director Lori Baxter, PT, DPT, MPH was published by Physiopedia. Patients like "Anthony" come to Hillside to receive resources & care to improve their quality of life and help them participate fully in society. As part of the services Hillside's Rehab Team provides, Anthony received a comprehensive evaluation, treatment and home exercise program, a wheelchair & walker to navigate his environment, and a home assessment to ensure safety & accessibility. Volunteers at Hillside & a local church teamed up with local craftsmen to build a portable commode and a ramp into his home.

An article entitled "Service: A Pharmacy Student's Look at Belize" can be found on page 3 of the UCONN School of Pharmacy Newsletter. In it, Brandon Bair, P4 student, shares about the patient pharmaceutical counseling he provided, the unique Hillside labeling system using pictures so that patients who do not speak English will be able to understand how to take the medication, using smart phone technology to double-check prescription dosages, and how he increased his confidence and autonomy as a future pharmacist through his student service at Hillside.
