Haiti Service Learning Initiative, January 2014
During the Haiti Service Learning Initiative this past January, our athletic trainers and students collaborated with Haitian healthcare workers to host daily health clinics for people with musculoskeletal conditions – evaluated, treated and provided home exercise programs for over 90 people. Additionally, they empowered 20 community health agents with the knowledge to help prevent back pain at work. The civil engineering group collaborated with the Water Committee for the town of Marmont to install filters for pipes in the main water system and advance community efforts in sustaining long term repair efforts on the water system.

From Mollie Fitzgerald on her recent trip to Haiti: “This was another amazing week spent in Haiti. I’ve come back with more friendships and motivation to return to Haiti and also could not feel more honored or proud to come home the God Mother of a beautiful little girl, Ove.”
