Joe Markee, M.D.

Serving faithfully

Title: Founder Emeritus

Joe is a semi-retired OB/GYN physician and is one of our founding board members, serving from 2006 through June 2020. During his time on the board, Joe chaired the medical health committee and, along with his wife Linda, led volunteer work teams. Joe has been going to Haiti since 1983 and he and his wife lived in Haiti for two years in the late 1990s. While he will not be performing the same roles as before, his passion and love for the people of Haiti will keep him involved as Founder Emeritus. In 2020, Joe and Linda were honored to receive the Beyond Duke Service and Leadership Award presented by the Duke University Alumni Association for their work in global health through Haiti Foundation of Hope.
