Capacity Already Reached as Team Readies for Haiti

We have already reached the limit of 100 attendees for Radiology Education Days to be held March 25-26 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.  A waiting list has been developed in case of cancellations.  The program is focused on pediatric imaging, an important and necessary service in this country of 10 million.  I want to thank the fine staff at Grace Children's Hospital and ICC for their logistical support.  We are especially indebted to the efforts of Rosa Voltaire Damas in registrering Haitian physicians and fielding questions about the program. 

Yesterday, we received four portable ultrasound units from our friends at Sonosite.  Sonosite generously provided loaner units with multiple transducers that will assist our hands-on training each afternoon.  Special thanks go to Wendy Schall and the outstanding staff at Sonosite for quickly turning around our requests in rapid time. 

We are all very excited to initiate this next stage in our efforts in Haiti.
