Helping Haiti: ‘We’ve done really some good work’

Dr. Ellen Kempf examines 2-year-old Nyderson Deris, who was brought to Akron Children's from Haiti for surgery to repair his heart defect.

Since making his first trip to Haiti in 2010, following that country’s devastating earthquake, Dr. Jeff Kempf has been humbled by the progress made by his Akron Children’s Hospital team and a larger coalition that now includes five other U.S. children’s hospitals.
