Ukiah Valley Medical Center (UVMC) Haiti Mission Project

On January 12, 2010 at 4:53 pm, the seventh deadliest natural disaster in history occurred. An estimates 230,000-250, 000 people lost their lives. 300,000 people were seriously injured and 1,300,000 people were left homeless. The resulting medical crisis was unprecedented.

Ukiah Valley Medical Center, led by Laura Wedderburn M.D. and Lynn Meadows P.A., began putting together a trip that would forever change lives. For those who went and those we served, this was our journey. Sixty volunteers from UVMC answered the call to go and provided medical care from May 7th through June 18th, 2010.
