MAC Medical Mission to Haiti

Some give by going. Some go by giving.

Each year, The University of Scranton's Medical Alumni Council sends a team of select alumni doctors and students on a medical mission to provide medical care for the underserved people of Haiti. The 2019 Mission will take place January 20-26th. The mission is a transformational experience for students entering the medical field as well as our practicing physicians. For many Haitian adults and children, this will be the only time they will see a doctor until we return in 2020.

Our mobile clinic covers quite a bit of ground in one short week. Four alumni doctors and four premedical students provide care for nearly 1,000 Haitians in 80 hours, treating hypertension, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, infections, wounds, parasites and diabetes. We are blessed to work with Passionist priest and physician Father Rick Frechette, who runs Foundation St. Luc and St. Damien's Hospital in the capital city of Port-au-Prince. St Damien's hospital is a pediatric hospital while St. Luc is an instrumental hospital serving the adults in Haiti.

In order to do the most good, we need to bring our own supplies. Please see the tab below for a list of supplies/meds we would like to bring with us.

If you are unable to donate items but would like to support our efforts, we would deeply appreciate monetary gifts.

Thank you for your prayers, support, and generosity.
