HME Project at recent conference

Drake DelvoixOn December 5, several HME staff members had the opportunity to participate in “Edikasyon pou tout moun” (“Education For All”) in Port-au-Prince, a day-long conference on the state of medical education and professional development for physicians in Haiti. The conference was organized by the Boston-based organization Physicians for Haiti (P4H), and featured talks on “The Right to Medical Education” and “The Challenges of Health Professionals in Haiti,” among other topics.

HME’s Haiti Operations Director, Drake Delvoix, sat on the “Current State of Course Development” panel and presented a talk introducing HME and our work to the audience. Mr. Delvoix outlined our approach to curriculum development, using our weekly Wednesday lecture series as a model of successful curriculum development.The entire conference was available to off-site audience members via live videostreaming, made possible by Vidyo’s generous donation of equipment and technical support to HME, who in turn donated these services to the conference organizers.
