  1. I hope this is for real! What I mean is that after the media goes away from Haiti, UVA Hoos will follow with the help that Haiti’s people need, at least a few years from now. Sustainable development should be offered as a subject so that UVA students can rotate in Haiti and create the opportunities for the haitians that are alive, developing an outreach project with an institution of UVA in Port-au-Prince. Also spring brake is coming soon, maybe the next flight you’ll book is to go to Haiti as a volunteer – their beach resorts are good too! The chances and changes will be huge, cause everyone of us can make a difference. How many surgeons does Haiti has? They need their MD’s accepted in US programs with the condition of going back and develop public practice in Haiti for 5 years after the program is done. How many haitians have been accepted in Surgery programs in the last 10 years? How many chances have the people of Haiti? I’ve seen face to face the reality that Haiti deals with everyday. Let’s not make a difference only today! Please.
