January 2015 visiting physician volunteers

On January 21-23. 2015, Dr. Michel Ange Ferdinand, a family practice physician from New Jersey, was ecstatic to visit Leogane and work at the Rasin Foundation Medical clinic.  In one morning session, he was able to see 15 patients while other providers were also working.  He loved the community and the calming and welcoming atmosphere of the clinic and promised to return and connect us with other colleagues for the benefit of the people ofLeogane.
