Dispatch | Haiti 2019

I first embedded as a photojournalist with NYAGI during the organization’s second medical trip to Nepal in 2017. I had the opportunity to get out to the more remote villages and captured some poignant images for the nascent Boulder, Colorado-based humanitarian non-profit. Two years later, I was back on assignment with NYAGI, this time in Haiti, one of the world’s most challenged countries. Now a burgeoning NGO, NYAGI is hyper-focused on an innovative teaching approach to basic diagnostic ultrasound skills with the goal of improving global health and saving lives in the remote, rural, and resource-limited corners of the world. Dr. Cliff Gronseth, NYAGI’s wildly charismatic and energetic founder, is obsessively motivated by the fact that every two minutes, somewhere in the world, a mother dies of simple complications related to childbirth—most of which could be avoided if they were diagnosed.
