Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, November 7, 2015 and Sunday, November 8, 2015: This presentation is based partly on an elective course taken at York College in the Department of Nursing during the summer of 2014. This course afforded students the opportunity to travel to Haiti for two weeks as part of the clinical component of the course which integrated theory into clinical practice. While in Haiti we had the opportunity to work alongside other health professions in the area of Carries, Haiti. Another component of the trip was an invitation to attend the third annual Haitian Kennedy Fellows conference in Cap Haitian, Haiti. The fellows were from various regional public universities throughout Haiti. We worked as a group on a hygiene related project with elementary school children and body mechanic and cataract prevention with local farmers. We also had the opportunity to plant trees on the farm. Overall this collaborative project gave both groups the opportunity to work together and learn from each other, even when a language barrier existed.
