I am the host of a weekly radio broadcast called Health Corner /Kwen Sante which is part of UDH Services organization.
The goal is to address prevention, raise public awareness around primary care, and empower the patients to be able to take better care of themselves. We are hoping that by doing this outreach and education we can reduce the healthcare disparity that exists when we compare the Haitian community to others. The newly arrived Haitian immigrants and the elderly patients are turning to the Haitian Media to get information on all types of news including American and Haitian political news, and current events. Large proportions of the audience are illiterate or have a low English proficiency. There is a lot of misinformation done by unqualified speakers. Patients often come to ask me about misinformation they hear in the media. Our role has been to clarify and provide them with accurate information so they can be properly informed. I have other professionals who have already volunteered to participate in the show. So far we have lined up pediatricians, school teachers, pharmacist, nurses, and a case worker.
