St. Joseph Clinic 10th Anniversary Celebration and the
Thomassique Health Fair


We celebrated the 10th anniversary of the opening of St. Joseph Clinic in Thomassique, Haiti, on June 4, 2017.

Improving Health Care in Haiti through EducationThe anniversary celebration started out with a Mass said by Fr. Ronel at St. Thomas, the local Catholic
church. Dr. Lawrence and our Global Health Fellows spoke at Mass to thank the Thomassique community for their support of the Clinic, and they invited everyone to attend the Thomassique Health Fair at the Clinic that afternoon.

Over 300 people participated in the Health Fair, which featured more than a dozen education tables. Clinic doctors, nurses, and Community Health Workers shared information with villagers about health issues that affect their daily lives.

Topics included the importance of vaccinations, dental hygiene, women's health, ways to improve nutrition, disease prevention, the importance of water purification, and more! At each table, the participants received tickets that made them eligible to win prizes in the raffle that followed. Along with the raffle, the participants enjoyed music and snacks.

Everyone enjoyed themselves, and appreciated the opportunity to learn more about ways to improve the health of their families.
