Nassau County Doctors Volunteer to Help Haiti

Legislator Joseph Belesi met Friday, February 5 with a 4 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.

Legislator Belesi, who was also joined by Nassau County Health Committee Chairwoman and Legislator Rose Marie Walker and officials from the American Red Cross, held a news conference to honor these kind people. “Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, we saw many generous Americans donate money and food to help the relief efforts,” said Belesi. “These surgeons of fantastic character are taking things a step further, and I’m proud to see residents of Nassau County doing everything they can to help.”
