CBU senior Biology majors participated in a volunteer Medical Mission to Haiti.
  • Bro. Edward Salgado, Chair, CBU Biology Dept., and three CBU Biology students, Robert Appling, Stacey Bourg, & Sarah Stinnett, worked at a medical clinic in Haiti during Spring Break 2003. 
  • Travel and housing expenses for student participants are funded by a generous donation from the CBU and CBHS Brothers' Community. Dr. Gordon Kraus, St. Francis Hospital, was the leader of the group.
  • Another group of students will have a similar opportunity during the 2003-2004 academic year.  For more information, contact:  Bro. Edward Salgado, Chair, CBU Biology Dept.  
  • Winter/Spring 2003 Belltower features HMM  "Return to Haiti" by Mandi Buss describes the March 2003 CBU students' trip to Haiti with HMM.
