Support CHANCE


Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. For someone suffering from complex thyroid diseases or head injuries, there is almost no chance for a normal life between poverty and a debilitating condition. At Jefferson, we believe that everyone, regardless of their financial situation or ability to travel to Philadelphia, should have access to quality care.

For the past four years, members of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery—residents, medical students, nurses, and anesthetists—have traveled to Haiti to provide complex head and neck care and education (CHANCE).

Your generosity can make a substantial impact on the lives of people needing care in Haiti.

CHANCE is making a difference for the patients of Haiti.

Meet the many faces the CHANCE team has healed.

Where Technology and Healthcare Collide

For the first time, Jefferson surgeons will help treat complex cases of head and neck surgeries in Haiti by using 3D printing technology at the Jefferson Health Design Lab.
