Staff Spotlight: Dr. Thérilien Lolo
Dr. Lolo has worked at the Lespwa Timoun Clinic since November 2011. Not only does Dr. Lol provide general consultations at the clinic and of malnourished children for the Nutrition Program, he also focuses on preventative medicine through the Hypertension & Diabetes Club and Sanitary Education in schools.
Dr. Lolo shared that he is motivated to do this great work because he knows how poor health care is in Haiti. He knows that his presence helps the most vulnerable people get access to basic health care services.
Dr. Lolo shared that the following was his favorite memory from working at the clinic: “One day a woman came to me with her husband and child to ask me about my name so that she could pray for me every night. She did so because she was happy that I saved her child’s life. She was very happy, and I was very happy for that.”
When he’s not saving lives, Dr. Lolo likes to spend his free time playing chess, reading, going to the beach, and spending time with his wife and son.
When asked to share one thing he wishes people would know about him, Dr. Lolo said, “I wish people would know that I care about what I am doing and I am always ready to help anyone.” It’s this sort of passion and work ethic that makes Dr. Lolo an integral part of the staff at Lespwa Timoun Clinic, and the lives of the thousands of patients he’s served.
We are so grateful for Dr. Lolo and all he does to make a healthier, brighter future for Haiti.
