CBU senior Biology majors participated in a volunteer Medical Mission to Haiti.
  • Four CBU Biology students worked at a medical clinic in Haiti during CBU's Oct. 2002 Fall Break (Nina Addison, Scott Adelman, Andy Asbury, and Edin Basic).  Three CBU Biology students and Bro. Edward Salgado travelled to Haiti during Spring Break 2003 (Robert Appling, Stacey Bourg, & Sarah Stinnett). Photos from the March 2003 trip to Haiti.
  • 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.   [Press release]

Patients arrive at the clinic. (Apparently, the patients start arriving at the compound at ~4:30  a.m., and start knocking on the doors. The clinic inside the compound does not open until ~7:30 a.m.)  [Caption by Dr. Esien]
