HADAC takes a new direction with education

In 2011 one of our clinic volunteers had to drop out of medical school in his 3 rd year of a 6 year medical program, due to lack of funds. We have selected him to experiment with a medical school tuition program.

This month he will re-enroll in medical school in Santiago. I have very high hopes this student will follow through and complete his education. Funds will not be paid back; instead, he will work for the medical clinic for 1 to 2 years after he is finished his training, for 6 hours each Saturday. The cost to attend medical school for four years including books, excluding room and board is about $5000-$6,000 USD a year.

I believe the risk is 50-50 for the dollars spent and the rewards will be high.

HADAC’s first sponsored Doctor Graduates!

Such exciting news as our own Dr. Wally K. Jean Graduates

July 15, 2016

Written by Our Medical coordinator Teresita grant – Very excited to be sharing a special event. My very talented friend Wally K. Jean will become a Doctor of Medicine tomorrow, and I have been invited to the ceremony in Santiago. I am proud and honoured to be included in this celebration of his hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to the art of healing… A truly positive moment in an increasingly challenging world. It has been a pleasure and inspiration to watch this young man grow into such a necessary and valued role, with skills that will be greatly appreciated, both here and in Haiti.
