NOAH NY Medical Missions: Saving Lives One Person At A Time
NOAH NY is a chapter of the not-for- profit National Organization for the Advancement of Haitians founded in Washington, DC in 1991. NOAH NY has successfully conducted medical missions to Haiti since 2008 in partnership with the Haitian American Alliance of New York (HAA-NY), under the leadership of Dr. Henri R. Paul. Dr. Paul is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Department of Nephrology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York and an Attending Physician at Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, New York Methodist Hospital, and Kings County Hospital Center. Healthcare, community development and education have always been the primary focus for NOAH NY medical missions. This commitment to the people of Haiti, born out of the desire to see a reduction in the healthcare disparities, intensified following the devastating earthquake of January 12th 2010. NOAH NY medical mission volunteers are comprised of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, social workers, public health specialists and educators who pay their own expenses to participate in life supporting efforts that take place at Fort Liberte Hospital.
