Mary Fargen – HACAOT Team Member and 2011 Physician Assistant of the Year Award Winner

At 6:00 am Monday morning a team of 18 doctors, nurses, clinicians, and founding members of the Haitian Caribbean American Organization of Texas  (HACAOT), will  leave for the first of five days to different regions of  Cap Haitian, the second largest city in Haiti.  Each day the group will set up and break down a health care clinic capable of treating hundreds of severely under served people a day.

Mary Fargen, the Medical Director for the non-profit  HACAOT, is here on her 14th trip to Haiti.  This year Mary received the 2011 Humanitarian Physician Assistant of the Year Award, presented by the American Academy of Physician Assistants.  The video linked to this post tells her story much better than I could. Tomorrow I’ll photograph her in action.  The time you take today to watch this video will be enriching.
