  • Development projects in Haiti
    Verrettes, Haiti 2011
    As part of a multidisciplinary course offered at the Yale School Forestry, designed to explore sustainable development in the Haitian context, we collaborate with L’Hopital Albert Schweitzer in the Artibonite Valley (north of Port-au-Prince). We provide advice to the hospital on the development and implementation of disease management programs for diabetes and hypertension in their catchment area (355,000 individuals), and of methods to improve basic nutrition, which has been severely affected by deforestation and crop failure.
