Aesclepius Medical Society, Inc. (“AMS”) is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the advancement of minorities in the field of medicine through mentorship, academic support, and resources. AMS also exposes physicians, members as well as aspiring health professionals to the practice of giving back through our year-round community services that provide healthcare assistance to the medically-underserved populations of New York and Haiti. In the aftermath of the overpowering earthquake that devastated the homeland on January 12, 2010 and beyond, the organization sent approximately 150 volunteers to Haiti to provide care, donate food, water, clothes and 1000 pairs of shoes. AMS also responded to the vexing cholera outbreak by sending antibiotics, IV fluids as well as a delegation of providers. Additionally, the organization has been embarked on a project to send to school impoverished children in need of an education. To face the destruction caused by hurricane Matthew, AMS completed an emergent mission in Haiti whereby, water, food, clothes and medications were provided to hundreds of people who were severely affected. These have been just a few of our activities in Haiti. In New York, AMS has held multiple health fairs in Brooklyn.
Acknowledgment and Creation of Bridges
By Herold Simon, M.D.
It pleases me to thank you on behalf of AMS for having taken the time to celebrate the society’s anniversary with us. It is more than a celebration: An opportunity to raise funds to support education in Haiti, also increase the Haitian pool of physicians in the United States and the Caribbean Countries.
Many thanks to our MC Naika Charles D'Haiti for a wonderful job.
Another round of applause for our distinguished honorees:
-Life of Hope
Next year, the society will celebrate its 40th birthday. We are anxiously looking forward to it. It will be extraordinary!
We don't usually take time as we should to celebrate our OWN because this is not the mission or vision; however, let us be reminded that no organization from which anyone ever gets a salary arrives at 40 years of age without many selfless individuals dedicating time and sweats to its cause. So much for the glory of human kindness! Again, we are preparing a huge bash for next year. We will be proud to have you and many others in commemoration of the 40th year.
Pencil into your calendar: Feb 22, 2025.
Last year, AMS announced the formation of a coalition with five, well-established organizations:
Association of Children of Renier, Fleur De Vie, HEAL Haiti, Haitian Diaspora United for Haiti and Project St. Anne. AMS remains committed to this endeavor towards providing education to children because that's where the future of Haiti lies.
Thanks a lot, dear friends!
