Prof. Mark Schuller, Social Sciences
York College counseling center Haiti is experiencing the most devastating humanitarian crisis of our generation. Estimates of 200,000 dead only scratch the surface. Images in mainstream media only serve to make people feel powerless. Haitian people are the heroes of this story, and they are doing everything they can. The survivors do need help – and we can and should give it – but first and foremost we need a fuller picture of what is going on and how we can aid in ways that truly help.
Prof. Schuller will share his expertise and report on his experience participating in grassroots response efforts. He was part of one of the first medical missions to arrive in response to the earthquake. Other York College and New York City agencies will provide information about services to help Haiti and to help Haitians in our community. The local Haitian community is especially welcome to attend this educational event.
