Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and has endured repeated political and natural disasters over the last several decades. The country’s growth is hampered by its extreme poverty, poor infrastructure, lack of social services, and high levels of corruption. Because of Haiti’s inadequate hospital infrastructure and trained medical personnel, many Haitians lack access to basic health care services.
FHU’s faculty-led study abroad program in Haiti is an opportunity for FHU nursing and business students to serve the people of Haiti using their skills and knowledge. During the one-week mission trip, nursing and business students will have the opportunity to engage in service learning while also gaining valuable experience and on-the-job training by providing basic medical care and business training to Haitian citizens.
The service and educational experience in Haiti is designed to supplement NSG 299A/399A Nursing Medical Missions: Haiti, and BUS 399 Business Missions: Haiti, courses taught on campus during the first week of the January two-week short course, prior to the medical mission trip. The program is based Thomazeau, Haiti, at the LiveBeyond facility. Additional information about the LiveBeyond mission is available at livebeyond.org.
