ABLe owner Josef Tuazon, DPT partnered with the Burn Advocates Network, the Haitian Ministry of Health and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine to open the first ever Physical and Occupational Therapy Rehabilitation Clinic in Northern Haiti. Dr. Josef treated both earthquake and non-earthquake victims, both young and old, at the Justinien Hospital Campus and their new outpatient clinic. Patients included post-earthquake amputees, fractures, burn cases , spinal cord injuries and pediatric cases. ABLe and the Burn Advocates Network also joined forces with For Haiti With Love at their burn clinic and orphanage during their volunteer stay. In addition, Dr. Josef was responsible for teaching the inaugural Physical Therapy classes to the first rehab nurses at the hospital. Sam Davis, President of the Burn Advocates Network, Dr. Pierre-Louis, Chief of Orthopedics at Justinien Hospital, Dr. Vulcain, Chair of the Haiti Project at the University of Miami and Josef Tuazon, the program’s Chief of Rehabilitation, have scheduled regular trips back to Haiti to ensure the project’s success. Dr. Josef said it best when he said, “Some of us are able to donate money, while others donate their time. All are equally important as long as we all give. A Better Life for all people starts first with your heart.”
