The medical conference hosted by the Haiti Foundation of Hope team working in Haiti this month was like rain for parched land, said one of the doctors who attended.
The one-day conference was organized by Haitian and American team members and featured presentations on pneumonia, skin infections, diarrhea, eye problems and anemia. The presentations were done by physicians from the Northwest and an ophthalmologist from Colorado.
Twenty-eight medical professionals, including doctors and nurses, attended the conference, which was held at the Clinic of Hope.
The conference was intended to encourage medical professionals in Haiti and give them additional information to help them in their work. This was the second medical conference held at the Clinic of Hope and more are being planned for the future.
