OD needed in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti, March 4-11

As you might know I’ve been doing some service work for the last few years in Haiti with some of our Nurse Practitioner students. One of my colleagues who has a small non-profit also doing work there is traveling to Port-Au-Prince with a group of nurses and has asked if I know an optometrist who might be willing to join them between March 4-11.    If you know anyone who might be willing to go along, let me know and I can put them in touch with my friend Anne St. Juste. Participants are responsible for their own costs, approximately $1,200.   If interested in this interdisciplinary medical mission trip opportunity, now or in the future, please contact me (lcasser@salus.edu) and I would be happy to make the connection.   Sue Miller, O.D.
