Dr. Peter Rovito has been going on one or two mission trips a year, since 2007, with the World Surgical Foundation based in Harrisburg.

“I once performed 25 thyroid surgeries in five days during a mission trip to the Philippines,” the Allentown doctor explained.

Originally from Shamokin, Rovito attended Temple University Medical School, Philadelphia, graduating in 1983.

“I say a prayer for Temple every night because it made me a doctor,” Rovito said.
