Haiti Mission Trip 2016

In partnership with Healing International Medical Mission (HIMM), Izabela Tarasiewicz, MD, and Derek C. Samples, MD, recently traveled to Haiti to provide medical services to the community of Ouanaminthe. The Department of Neurosurgery’s goal in participating in this annual mission trip is to improve the city’s medical facilities and ultimately establish a significant pediatric neurosurgical practice in that region. This year we preformed 45 surgeries and conducted several consultations for future treatments.

We are thankful for the opportunity to serve the people of Haiti and look forward to next year’s mission trip.
