Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. For someone suffering from complex thyroid diseases or head injuries, there is almost no chance for a normal life between poverty and a debilitating condition. At Jefferson, we believe that everyone, regardless of their financial situation or ability to travel to Philadelphia, should have access to quality care.
For the past four years, members of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery—residents, medical students, nurses, and anesthetists—have traveled to Haiti to provide complex head and neck care and education (CHANCE).
