Vivien Ingram grew up in Mesquite, Texas (Dallas area) and graduated from Texas Tech University in May 2009. After graduation she moved to Port-au-Prince, Haiti to work in a women’s clinic. She soon identified the following issues and concerns: dependence on foreign aid, lack of potable water, poor health care options, decades of political instability, and violence against women.

On January 12, 2010 at 4:53PM the country (and Vivien's life) was changed forever by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that killed over 160,000 people and left around 1 million people homeless. The issues that existed prior to the disaster still existed and became magnified by the complete loss of infrastructure and the influx of foreign aid that had no where to go.

Please join Vivien as she talks about her experiences in Haiti and the healthcare challenges the country still faces, even after five years of recovery.

After Vivien completes medical school and residency, she aspires to practice medicine in a developing country or an underserved area in the United States.
