Support The MAC Medical Mission To Haiti

Students and Alumni doctors provide medical care to the people of Haiti each year on the MAC Medical Mission to Haiti.
January 9, 2018

The University of Scranton's Medical Alumni Council will once again send a team of students and alumni doctors on its annual MAC Medical Mission to Haiti Jan. 21, where the team will spend a week providing the underserved people of Haiti with medical care.

Over the years, the mission has served as a transformational experience for students entering the medical field as well as the practicing physicians who lead it. During the mission, four alumni doctors and four premedical students typically care for nearly 1,000 Haitians in 80 hours, treating maladies such as hypertension, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, infections, wounds, parasites and diabetes. 

In preparation for the trip, the team has begun collecting a wide variety of medical items. Visit here to see the list or to make an online gift to the mission trip. For more information, contact Associate Director of Volunteer Engagement Lynn Andres '89 at 570.941.4142 or lynn.andres@scranton.edu.
