The Haitian Health Conference, formally the Haitian Health Career Seminar, was initiated in 2001 by college and medical students concerned about the under-representation of Haitians in advanced health professions. The conference continues as an annual student-led event, drawing over one hundred health career oriented students and health care professionals each year. The attendees spend the day learning and reflecting on health problems that affect Haitians and health professionals from various disciplines as they share their experiences.
The Haitian Health Institute at Boston Medical Center is working with theYouth and Family Enrichment Services (YOFES) to implement the “Haitian-American Responsible Teen” (HART) program. The HART program is an afterschool program funded by the U.S Department ofHealth & Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health (OAH). HART is a healthy behavior research program that works with Haitian adolescents ages 13-19, who are in the 9th or 10th grade, in various schools in and around Boston. If you are interested in this program and have any questions or concerns for your child’s participation, you may contact Marie Foureau at 617-414-4467 or via email at Marie.Foureau@bmc.org. You may also contact Dominique Dupont-Dubois at 617-414-7702 or email us at HARTboston@gmail.com.
Participating schools include: Malden High School, Evertt High School, Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, Newcommers Academy, Community Academy of Science and Health (CASH), Tech Boston Academy and Randolph High School.
A sister organization of HHI, YOFES (Youth and Family Enrichment Services) is looking for university students to volunteer as Homework Buddies and Mentors for its “Youth With A Choice” after school program.
