This spring semester, all the Global Health Fellows, Classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018, have worked to analyze the data collected during the needs assessment survey they conducted in rural Haiti in November 2014. After identifying the critical needs expressed by the community, the fellows have broken into smaller vertical groups to explore the following topics: Water treatment (biosand filters); Shoe distribution; Scholarships for secondary school (potentially partnering with the Upper School French Club to do this); Human waste management (latrines); Handwashing; Nutrition; School garden; Energy poverty (distributing the Luci lights sold during the December fundraiser); Clean cook stoves. The GHFs will present on these topics at the Spring Symposium on Wednesday, May 20. The Classes of 2016 and 2018 will travel to Haiti for a week in June to implement some of the projects stemming from this research.
Please come out and hear what the Fellows have been up to!
