The Duke Global Health Institute recently highlighted Max Kligerman’s (’11) path towards improving healthcare conditions in Haiti following his DukeEngage experience there. His 2009 trip to Haiti inspired the pursuit of Duke’s global health certificate, and his admittance to medical school after graduation. Kligerman’s work with Family Heath Ministries preparing the Durham-based nonprofit to build a women’s health center in Haiti was a rewarding and educational experience, however the shocking devastation caused by the 2010 earthquake lead him back to re-survey healthcare in the area. Two journal articles comparing the pre- and post-earthquake status of Haiti’s healthcare system were later published, and Kligerman has since returned to the country as a Stanford medical student. In the article, Kligerman deemed Haiti his second home, and DukeEngage is happy to have facilitated this strong relationship. To read the full DGHI article, click here.
