Haitian born physician and University of Nebraska Medical Center Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Dr. Rubens J. Pamies along with several UNMC medical staff will talk about their experience providing care in Haiti in the aftermath of the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake and sign a book about their experience, Help and Hope for Haiti (Omaha Books, $27.95). The book tells of the five teams of volunteers from Omaha who went to Haiti and the challenges they faced as they struggled to deliver life-saving medical and surgical care within a shattered infrastructure. The book offers a compelling, eye-witness look at the disaster and the torrent of emotion it sometimes provoked. It also is a testament to the patience and the resilience of the Haitian people. In addition, the book outlines the international effort to rebuild the medical education infrastructure in Haiti. Proceeds from the book benefit the Haitian Relief Fund.
