Urology Meeting of November 15, 2013
OASIS International Hotel
Petionville, Haiti

Ladies and Gentlemen:
I thank you all for willing to volunteer your time to be part of this meeting which will usher in a new era of cooperation between Urologists within and outside of Haiti and move the specialty forward in order to better serve the Haitian population. I have taken the liberty to jot down some ideas and a sketch of a program, just as a starting point for discussion. Please feel free to comment, make suggestions or reject it completely.  Once the curriculum is adopted, we will select the presenters for each topic.
