With replicas of the Haitian flag proudly on display, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine paid tribute to one of its leading partners in Miami-Dade County’s Haitian community.

The flags flew in honor of Haitian Flag Day, but the guests who came to the Mailman Center for Child Development May 21 were there for a breakfast to recognize the generosity of the Center for Haitian Studies, and Executive Director Dr. Laurinus Pierre, in support of the University of Miami Pediatric Mobile Clinic.

The Center for Haitian Studies recently made a generous, multi-year commitment to provide funding for programs to benefit the children and families of the Little Haiti community.

“I’m here to celebrate our relationship with the Haitian community of Miami,” said Pascal J. Goldschmidt, M.D., Senior Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the Miller School, and CEO of the University of Miami Health System. “This is an amazing community that has provided extraordinary expertise and talent for years. Among such talent and expertise in health care is our partnership with the Center for Haitian Studies. It is just an amazing example of how a community can get organized and work with an academic medical center to provide health care and education.”
