Team From Howard University College of Medicine Helps Out in Haiti

A team of students, faculty, and medical residents from the College of Medicine at Howard University recently spent 10 days in Haiti in the continuing effort to help the island nation recover from the devastating earthquake which struck in 2010. The 35-member team worked 12-to-14-hour days and provided services to 3,000 Haitians. In addition clinics were held for health care providers.

Howard University is fortunate to have a full range of health sciences education. This gave us the ability to provide a broad array of health services as we sought to meet the needs of the Haitian people.”
