Students learn how their generosity helped Haiti

University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Dean Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., and Barth Green, M.D., professor and chair of neurological surgery at the Miller School, spoke at a student assembly at the Ransom Everglades Upper School on Friday afternoon.

The doctors talked about the medical relief effort in Haiti. The relief effort has involved hundreds of UM volunteers and other medical personnel from around the world and has been coordinated through the UM Global Institute and Project Medishare, which was co-founded in 1994 by Dr. Green to improve access to medical care in Haiti’s Central Plateau.

Within days of the earthquake, students at Ransom Everglades raised close to $30,000 for the UM Global Institute’s medical relief effort in Haiti. Dean Goldschmidt explained to the students how their money was used to care for those badly injured in the earthquake. Dr. Barth Green led the effort on the ground in Port-au-Prince and provided the students a first-hand account of the hours and days following the disaster.
