Dartmouth-Hitchcock sending team to Haiti

Associated Press - January 15, 2010 5:45 PM ET

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - A team of doctors from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center is headed to Haiti to help earthquake survivors.

Dartmouth College President Jim Yong Kim said the group is expected to leave Saturday. The team is part of Partners in Health, an organization Kim helped found to support health programs in poor communities worldwide.

Kim said he has worked everywhere from the slums of Peru to the prisons of Siberia but never has he seen anything as heart-wrenching as what has happened in Haiti.
