Nassau County Doctors Volunteer to Help Haiti

 

Legislator Denise Ford met Friday, February 5 with four surgeons from Nassau who are volunteering and heading to Haiti to provide emergency medical assistance this weekend to those in critical condition. The doctors, from the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, will be specializing in wound care to help avoid amputations.  

Ford, who was also joined by Nassau County Health Committee Chairwoman Legislator Rose Marie Walker and officials from the American Red Cross, held a news conference to honor these munificent people. “In the wake of one of the worst disasters in Haiti’s history, it is inspiring to see the work that these surgeons are willing to do,” said Ford. “We are truly lucky to have people with their tremendous character living in Nassau County.”
