Bastyr Fellow Sabine Thomas Helps Haiti Rebuild

Bastyr fellow Sabine Thomas examining the hand of a patient in Haiti

A candlelight vigil in the Bastyr University Chapel on Jan. 12, 2011, marked the one-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Haiti that killed an estimated 230,000 people, injured 300,000 and leveled much of the country.

But Bastyr University graduate Sabine Thomas, ND, did more than just help organize the vigil. She's also traveled numerous times to Haiti in the past year to help integrate naturopathic care into the continuing disaster relief efforts.
