Dr. Alexander in Haiti
Joshua Alexander, MD, director of pediatric rehabilitation at the NC Children’s Hospital and associate professor at UNC Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, helped care for disabled children at the Zanmi Beni Orphanage in Haiti from May 25 to June 1, along with Nicole Forsyth, MD, a medical resident in PM&R.
He includes fascinating trip details in his blog: http://uncpedsrehabhaititrip2013.blogspot.com/

Zanmi Beni was created to care for physically and/or mentally handicapped orphans, who were displaced by the devastating earthquake in January 2010.
A fund was set up on the NC Children’s Promise website for tax-deductible charitable donations to help Dr. Alexander and a resident physician make the trip and bring equipment and supplies along with them. The team reached its fundraising goal, thanks to your support!
To help support Alexander’s future endeavors caring for disabled children in Haiti, visit the N.C. Children’s Promise’s secure giving page. Select “Children’s Promise Fund (3427)” from the dropdown menu, enter your gift amount, and then type “Haiti13” into the appeal code box under “Gift Details.”.
