Arriving in Port-au-Prince

We arrived today in Port-au-Prince.  Our delegation had the opportunity to take a brief tour of Grace Children's Hospital.  Some exciting news is occurring at Grace.  New construction has begun providing expanding administrative and training capacity.  This is great news and I'm sure will be part of our discussion with ICC/Grace's leadership tomorrow.  We also drove through the city to see some of its highlights (and challenges).  A country of contrasts, much has begun to improve since the post-earthquake days and much remains to be done. 

It was great seeing old friends today.  The staff at ICC/Grace could not be more impressive serving as an outstanding host for our conference.  We start early tomorrow with roughly 140 health personnel expected.  After months of preparation, we can't wait to get started. 

Luggage including donated supplies and ultrasound equipment is brought on board a transport bus from the airport in Port-au-Prince. 

New construction begins at Grace Children's Hospital increasing their administrative and training facilities.
