UMass Dartmouth team arrives in Haiti
Last week's team got off safely this morning with a tearful goodbye for everyone. Just a few hours later, 24 new people arrived, including nursing students from UMass Dartmouth, nurses and faculty, several of whom who have been to Haiti with PID before, and PID medical coordinator Kelly Biagio. Everyone got started right away unpacking the suitcases of supplies that they carried down. The group also went for a walk to see the PID houses in the neighborhood. The big team is very excited to have a busy week, seeing lots of patients here at the PID clinic, going out on mobile clinics, and trying their hands at the construction site. The team looks forward to learning and discovering new things, both medically and culturally.
