Our guest for the remainder of the hour was Pamela Noel, MD. Dr. Noel graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 2003 and from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in 2008. She completed her Internal Medicine residency at Johns Hopkins University/Sinai Hospital in Baltimore 2011 and today specializes in Infectious Diseases at Tampa General Hospital. She is the CEO and founder of HELMT, Inc. which specializes in providing telemedicine and mobile clinic services to the poor in rural areas of Haiti and that was the focus of the conversation. Dr. Noel was born in New York but grew up in Haiti until the age of 10. She experienced firsthand the deplorable medical conditions in Haiti and swore she would work to make a difference in her Country. She completed her medical training and today is honoring her word having launched HELMT, Inc. In addition, she participated in several medical mission trips to Haiti during medical training and has a special interest in global health medicine and providing care to the poor. The mobile medical units that HELMT, Inc. is working to provide cost $250,000 to $500,000 and they need several to properly service the residents in Haiti. Dr. Noel explains how the majority of the population live in rural settings outside the capital Port-au-Prince and that the roads are not paved and difficult to travel on. Many people needing care of brought in on motorcycles and the quality of healthcare is very low in the Country. HELMT, Inc. is working to raise $3M to fund these mobile medical units as well as staff and also is in need of volunteers in the medical community for tele-medicine and nursing. Their crowd-funding campaign has just launched and she encourages you to contribute anything you can – find it online at www.gofundme.com/haitimobilehealth
