After five months at Danbury Hospital, I started working at PAP Hospital located in Paraiso, Barahona as the site director.
I am looking forward to improving the self-sustainability of the Hospital, implementing new ideas and transforming it to a teaching Hospital with the support of the WCHN Global Health program. We hope North American health care providers and students will have the opportunity to work with patients and with local hospital staff and students, learning about endemic diseases, and other health related problems triggered by the tropical weather, geographical location, poor sanitation system and socio-economic status and without the advances of technology.
