Kris Wa Clinic

In Haitian Créole, "Kris Wa" means "Christ-Roi" (Christ the King).  It's the name of the clinic that Outreach to Haiti operates in Por-au-Prince.  We were able to visit on Tuesday, where our PA majors (Physician Assistant) witnessed a vaccination clinic for children.  Wednesday, some of our students took part in learning about pediatric care as toddlers were brought in for check-ups. 

Rose-Laure, one of the nurses, was generous with her time, explaining the workings of he clinic to us.  We were impressed by the organization and commitment to children and families that was evident.
