2017 JHU SON Haiti Medical Mission Donation Drive Time: All Day Location: 525 North Wolfe Street, Baltimore MD Details:In October of 2017, a team from the SON comprised of nurse practitioner graduate students and faculty members will travel to rural Haiti to provide basic primary care to impoverished families in Léon, a mountain community in the southwest.This Haiti Medical Mission Program is a well-established, international nursing experience at the SON and teams have been going there for the past 18 years. 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. However, they would still like to extend the invitation to all members of the JHU community to participate as they wish. 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.
