At the meeting, Dr. Dodard and Ms. Powers spoke to the group about The Global Institute and Project Medishare’s programs in Haiti, including the Millennium Village in Marmont. Dr. Dodard also discussed the details of University of Miami’s workforce development program, which focuses on training Haitian residents to be family doctors in Cap Haitien.

The Global Institute is seeking funding from the US government for these programs supported and led by Representative Wasserman Shultz. The Florida representatives were very supportive of the programs.
