COS Doctor Returns from Volunteer Trip to Haiti

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

We’re happy to report that Dr. John Aversa recently returned from his 7th volunteer trip to Haiti. Traveling with a medical team from The Crudem Foundation, he and his associates operated on 40 major trauma cases, infections, fractures and evaluated hundreds of clinic patients. Additionally, his team took care of outpatient fractures and related ailments during their weeklong stay.

The cornerstone of Crudem’s mission is providing accessible quality health care and embracing all people in need regardless of their religion, economic status or medical condition.
