3 Week Senior Project in Haiti

Providence College senior Jeffrey Anderson is preparing for a 3 week trip to Fonfrede, Haiti leaving December 26, 2010. This will be his senior project and focus on interviewing some of the 15,000 people of Fonfrede. He will be gathering information on health in the area such as access to clean drinking water, immunizations, nutrition, knowledge about hygiene and food preparation, barriers to health care, and beliefs about traditional medicine vs Voodoo and the “leaf doctor.” The information Jeff collects will be valuable as we plan on services needed at our clinic including health education. We are proud to say that Jeff has traveled twice to Haiti with Forward in Health; 2007 as a high school senior and 2009 while in college. Best of luck to Jeff as he prepares for this ambitious and unique senior project.
