dental administrator Takes Medical Mission Trip to haiti
    H   ugs. Smiles. Appreciation. Not
        typical souvenirs from a trip to
the Caribbean.
   Confronting the aftermath of an
earthquake, experiencing the faces of
poverty and confronting the limits of
faith, hope and modern medicine are
not typical memories from a normal
spring break trip either. Providing den-
tal services to adults and children in
Haiti lends itself to the extraordinary in
a region of the world whose definition
of ordinary is much different than ours.
   Dr. Tonya Stewart, administrator of
the health department’s dental services
program, was part of a medical mission
team that traveled to Haiti in March. The
trip got off to a slow start as the group of
dentists, dental students, and a medical
team was stopped by passersby—on a
road that often turned into a dirt path
                                               der, allowing the mission team to finally
                                               reach its destination of Cap-Haitian.
                                                  Dr. Stewart and her colleague pro-
                                               vided screenings and numbed patients
                                               while the six IU dental students per-
                                               formed the basic procedures. “I was im-
                                               pressed with our students. They did not
                                               have a lot of experience and here they
                                               were in this unique environment,” said
                                               Dr. Stewart. The group saw more than
                                               700 school-age students and provided
                                               each with a fluoride treatment and
                                               basic dental care. “Sugarcane is grown
                                               locally, so they eat a lot of it. You can
                                               imagine the cavities and other damage
                                               we saw,” said Stewart.
                                                  Dr. Stewart met a very smart, very
                                               poor youth whose mother was strug-

bacteria that may exist in certain areas of the body. The study aims
to help girls learn about their bodies as they go through puberty.
This study requires that participants (females age 10-13 and their
mothers) visit a study site four times a year for up to four years. At
the visit, participants will be asked some personal questions about
their health and have swab samples collected. All participants will
be compensated for study participation. Adolescent participants will
receive $40 for each study visit. Mothers will receive $50 for each

     Student Top of class despite barriers
      T     he Public Relations Department received a visit from Ray-
            mond Rutland, senior at Manual High School, who is inter-
    ested in a career in marketing and graphic design. Raymond is one
    of Manual’s best students despite his disability—he is autistic.
       Autism limits Raymond’s ability to hold a conversation or com-
    prehend the meaning behind much of what he studies or reads.
       “He is a very smart student, but at times has trouble understand-
    ing complex statements. In working with Raymond, he may only
    answer with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ and has issues maintaining eye contact,”
    said College and Career Specialist Amber Shelton.
       Raymond is very enthusiastic about learning—evident in his
    school work and in his life. He thrives in a structured environment ,
    as do many people with autism. He is never late, never misses class,
    always obeys rules, and turns in his homework. Raymond’s teach-
    ers are certain he will be a dedicated employee and the Public Rela-
    tions staff at HHC agrees.                                                rayMoNd ruTlaNd, MaNual high School STudeNT, caMe To
