NYIT Global Health Team Promotes Partnerships, Saves Lives in Haiti

NYIT Global Health Team Saves Lives in Haiti

"All of our objectives were met, and most importantly, we saved lives," said Edward Gotfried, D.O., the center's director. While in Haiti, the team explored future educational opportunities in global health for NYIT students, built contacts with area physicians, and coordinated partnerships with local nonprofit groups Doctors United for Haiti and Save the Children. They also provided on-site medical training to doctors in Limbe and Peredo and worked with local healthcare providers to treat patients. Read More.
