Edward Gotfried, D.O., of NYIT’s Center for Global Health took conference attendees on a visual tour to Haiti and Ghana, where NYIT medical students and faculty provide health care. Engineering students have also traveled to the latter to work on projects that would bring energy and clean water to medical clinics. “There’s a certain synergy that develops when you take other disciplines with you,” Gotfried said. “There’s an interconnectedness to all of this.”
