This summer, two University of Portland students, one UP alumnus and one staff member from the Shiley School of Engineering traveled to Haiti to help repair medical equipment at a Port-au-Prince hospital.

The team worked 11-hour shifts for a week to fix infant incubators, electrosurgical units, patient monitors and suction pumps. They also organized a warehouse by taking a detailed inventory.

Maldeep Kang, who graduated in May, was joined by Shiley School of Engineering seniors Jessica Lazatin and Nate Roddy as well as staff member Jared Rees.

“The equipment we repaired will undoubtedly have a huge impact on the capabilities of the hospital,” Rees, an electronics engineering technician, said. “This type of volunteer experience is important for our engineering students because they get perspective not only on life outside of the U.S., but a perspective on engineering itself.”
