HELP student Theodule Jean-Baptiste: A real doctor

HELP student Theodule Jean-Baptiste visited HTF partners across the U.S. in the spring of 2012.  HTF supporters were inspired and impressed by his dedication to his country and his work.  Linked below is an article featuring Theo’s experience during his term of community service:

“Working with poor people from rural areas can be a lot different from working in the city,” Jean Baptiste says. “Here, I see patients in a social context, and I’ve learned to adapt my approach. Sometimes I have to compare the price of a patient’s transportation versus the value of the service they will receive.”

  

HTF is honored to support students like Theodule who are actively creating a future of hope, sustainability, and dignity for Haiti.
