Nassau County Doctors Volunteer to Help Haiti

Legislator Norma Gonsalves met Friday, February 5 with a 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.

Legislator Gonsalves, 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. “The earthquake in Haiti devastated that country in unimaginable ways,” said Gonsalves. “For these surgeons to go there and donate their time and efforts to help the relief effort is truly inspiring.”
