I am extremely excited to announce the launch of the METI Project. If you’re wondering what I was doing in Haiti back in January, this is it.
METI stands for Medical, Education, Training, and Infrastructure. The first METI team just arrived in Port-au-Prince today. A long week of work is ahead of them.
The METI Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote sustainability in healthcare through medical education, training, and improved infrastructure in under-served areas of the world. Launched in 2013 by Professional Ambulance (Pro EMS) and Pro EMS Center for MEDICS, The METI Project’s first initiative addresses critical medical needs in Haiti, one of the world’s poorest countries.
In conjunction with the St. Luke Foundation for Haiti, The METI Project will send a team of medics, paramedic students, and emergency department staff to Haiti to provide medical training and needed clinical services.
I look forward to future work with The METI Project in late June and again in October!
