Emergency Support to Haiti
In response to the disaster in Haiti, the IPNA in collaboration with the ASPN and ASN, is requesting our communities’ support in establishing a network of centers and resources to provide needed services to the victims. The IPNA efforts thus far include a commitment of $15,000 towards the relief effort and facilitation of a data base of institutions, contact information and resources to assist in either receiving patients for care and/or your availability and members of your team to travel to a designated medical facility to provide pediatric nephrology services.
Thank you for your support and vision for a better Haiti
The information we will need includes the following:
- Your Name
- Your Hospital name and location
- Your email
- Your office phone
- Your after hours phone (e.g. cell phone)
- Number of kids you could take
- Are you interested and able to go to Haiti (this most likely will not occur)?
If this goes forward I will share with you my knowledge from the issues that arose 15 years ago from this issue of communication, support of these families, perhaps immigrations issues that arose, etc.
