The SON team will join with other physician, nurse, pharmacist, translator, and lay volunteers in Haiti. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, the team will care for adults and children of all ages presenting to the clinic with a wide variety of health problems.In addition to seeing patients in clinic, our team also plans a public health initiative, specifically focussed on school-based pediatric dental health care.During times when so many need so much in so many places, the team recognizes that resources everywhere are stretched precariously thin.

The team is seeking donations of any size to assist with this project.Donation boxes will be placed in the SON main entrance from September 18, 2017 to September 29, 2017 for anyone to drop off the following:***Toothbrushes***Dollar Story Reading Glass (2.0 or 2.5 power) - (not prescription)Cash donations also welcome and the team will then purchase these and other needed medical supplies.
