Haiti

In the Heart of Haiti


Haiti called out to the people of Alpert Medical School long before the earthquake of January 2010. And our connection will endure – must endure – far into the future. Members of the Brown community continue to work with our Haitian colleagues on both individual and system levels – providing clinical care, sharing perspectives and expertise, and helping to teach the next generation of health care professionals. As the work continues, we hope that the voices on this site will keep Haiti on our minds and in our hearts.
