For years now, University of Miami doctors and medical students have been quietly working to promote better healthcare in poverty-stricken Haiti, treating HIV-infected individuals and training Haitian doctors.
That work will be the focus of a three-day visit set to begin on Sunday by University of Miami President Donna Shalala, and best-selling author and global health expert, Laurie Garrett. Garrett, who has made a name for herself focusing on infectious diseases and their impact on foreign policies, has focused much of her work on Africa and Asia. She has spent a limited time in the Caribbean, but Shalala and others are hoping the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist catches the Haiti bug.
