Thomonde, HAITI–While the surgical team is working at Saint Bernard Mevs in Port-au-Prince, Morehouse School of Medicine along with George Washington University School of Medicine and School of Public Health is up in Haiti’s central plateau working with Project Medishare’s Haitian team.
Morehouse is conducting a continuation of Emory School of Medicine needs assessment survey on nutrition by measuring hemoglobins to quantify the number of anemia cases, conducting screenings for visual acuity and distributing sunglasses/eyeglasses/eye drops. This is Morehouse’s first medical trip to Haiti.
Both schools will also be assisting Project Medishare’s mobile clinic this week traveling from village to village providing health care to the central plateau.
