Dear Colleagues:

In response to a desire by faculty, staff and students on all ten UC campuses to find ways that our university can support the rebuilding of Haiti¸ a group of UC students has taken the initiative to organize a “UC Haiti” Summit.  As a UC system, we have much talent and expertise in many different fields needed to assist the Haitian people in the long process of rebuilding their earthquake-devastated country.  We are pleased to support our student’s efforts in coordinating this one-day Summit.

A series of meetings is being planned to take place on April 24, 2010 at UCSF Mission Bay campus.  The day will involve discussion among UC faculty, staff and students to identify possible projects, explore collaborations and develop a plan of action. Individuals are asked to register for the Summit by going to www.tinyurl.com/uchaiti

Members of the UC community have a long and proud history of public service, and the long-term rebuilding of Haiti is an effort in which our faculty, staff and students may wish to contribute their talent, creativity and expertise. 

Please send all inquiries to [email protected] .

 

Susan Desmond-Hellmann, M.D., M.P.H.
