Haiti Day 2008

HALO is hosting its second Haiti Day celebration in collaboration with Jackson Memorial Hospital/Public Health Trust on May 16th, 2008. As with our first Haiti Day, our goal is to celebrate and promote our culture. This year Haiti Day has been moved to the month of May in order to join the rest of Dade County in the celebration of Haitian Cultural Heritage.

Our Keynote Speaker will be Representative Yolly Roberson who will speak on the "Contributions of Haitians to the Healthcare System in South Florida".

Special recognition awards will be presented to special individuals working in our community and for our community such as Gina and Ginette Eugene for their compassion and dedication to helping those in need in the Haitian community; Dr. Jesus Gomez of University of Miami/Public Health Trust for his outstanding contribution to health care delivery in the Haitian community; Odianne Medacier, MSN, ARNP, for providing first class care to her patient and her commitment to community service; and Dr. André Vulcain for his tireless dedication in teaching medical schools students in Haiti.
