As in previous years, FHM is partnering with the Duke Global Health Institute’s Student Research Training (SRT) Program to conduct valuable research to inform FHM public health initiatives. Our students Caroline Keefe, Sarah Beaverson, Haley Talbot and Natali Rey are living and working in the Leogane community.  They have traveled also to Fondwa and Tom Gato to work with women in the new Carmelle Voltaire Women’s Health Center.  Their summer research projects, which take place between May 29th and July 24th, include: a) individual surveys with Haitian women on contraceptive knowledge and perceptions: and b) interviews with healthcare leaders and focus group discussions with community members on the most common factors leading to stress among women.  Through the assistance of two Haitian translators (Berlyn and Jamison), they are able to engage with the community and gain valuable insights on local opinions and attitudes.  FHM will use the data collected to inform the future programming of activities at the Carmelle Voltaire Women’s Health Center.
