We are a team of students and veterinarians from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. We come from a variety of backgrounds but we share a passion for cultural exchange and One Health. We use our knowledge, tools, and training to help people by helping their animals.
In addition to our Philadelphia team, we are joined in Haiti by a group of community leaders in Quartier Morin as well as Haitian students enrolled in a veterinary agent program. Veterinary agents are trained in many of the same veterinary skills that we use at our clinics; by collaborating with them on our project we hope to increase the community's awareness of and accessibility to the veterinary resources available to them year round in Haiti.
