In May 2012, we did medical clinics in Goyavier, Pont Sonde, and BonBerger. This was the first time that we went to Goyavier, a city located high in the mountains behind St. Marc. We tried something new this trip – bringing 2 Haitian nurses to assist our doctor as well as 3 U.S nurses. This method allowed us to see many more patients in a shorter time period. Since May of 2011, we have been using a computer to record our patients, their vital information, their symptoms, their diagnosis, and the treatment that we prescribed. During our November 2011 and this May 2012 trip, we were able to use this information to measure the effectiveness of our previous treatments.
