Neonatology Fellow Travels to Port Au Prince, Haiti

U of M neonatology fellow, Megan Linn, M.D., traveled with our global pediatrics faculty, Tina Slusher, M.D., to Port Au Prince, Haiti, in July 2011. The purpose of the trip was to teach pediatric residents at Hospital de l'Universite d'Etat d'Haiti (HUEH; the largest hospital in Haiti), and to provide education--alongside Haitian faculty--on neonatology topics requested by neonatal nurses and doctors at St Damien Pediatric Hospital.

Megan Linn, pictured here with a child in the Abandoned Child Ward of St. Damien Pediatric Hospital, is the first fellow to travel abroad on international elective with the U of M Pediatric Global Health Track.
