Haiti Programs Update (July 2013 - September 2013)

It seems the MTI-Haiti Advantage Program is on growth hormones! In July, June Hanks (MTI-Advantage Program Director) and Consuelo Alzamora (Occupational Therapist and Rehabilitation Clinic & Outreach Manager) traveled to the Dominican Republic to investigate ways to engage more fully with the physical therapy program in Santiago. The university has many physical therapy students from Haiti. At the request of the faculty, we will assist in curriculum design to help prepare the program for World Confederation of Physical Therapy recognition.

Under the leadership of Consuelo Alzamora, our Rehabilitation Clinic and Outreach Program Manager, we have started our Stroke & Diabetes Prevention and Management Program. See pictures here on our “Blood Pressure in the Park” activity in which the staff conducted blood pressure screenings and provided education on hypertension, stroke and diabetes.
