The Haiti Lab cholera project was launched shortly after cholera appeared in Haiti in October of 2010. It resulted in this November 2011 article in the CDC journal Emerging Infectious Diseases (link to journal website) and a digital map by Deborah Jenson, Victoria Szabo, and the Haiti Lab Student Research Team. The article and accompanying map explore historical outbreaks of cholera in the Caribbean in order to lend insight into the current spread of the disease in Haiti, where cholera has not existed previously.
Members of the Haiti Lab Student Research consisted of students in the Lab’s Fall 2010 Tutorial: Alfredo Rivera, Dhrusti Patel, Alston Neville, Edward Jernigan (UNC), James Ivker, Matthew Hoyle, Janani Arangan, Erin Cloninger, and Sedlin Mirtil. Each student also completed their own project that contributed research to both larger group projects. Visit the students’ profiles to find links to their projects.
