Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 29, 2014
During the chapel service, Dr. Vanderpool will share his experiences of providing medical care during disaster events around the world, and how he and his wife established LiveBeyond, a non-profit organization, to bring medical and maternal healthcare, clean water, orphanage support and community development to the poor in Thomazeau, Haiti.
LiveBeyond has a close partnership with Belmont, and works with the university’s faculty to develop and implement various programs and resources in Haiti. The university generously provides LiveBeyond with an office space on the Belmont campus, and sends students and professors to LiveBeyond’s base in Thomazeau for medical mission trips and Maymester classes taught by Dr. Vanderpool in Haiti.
“Our relationship with Belmont has allowed us to better provide new services and resources to the oppressed in Thomazeau,” said Dr. Vanderpool. “The faculty continuously works side-by-side with our team to bring new knowledge and expertise to transform the lives of locals in the community.”
The Provost Office’s Living in a Global Community Initiative, the College of Health Sciences, the College of Theology & Christian Ministry and the College of Pharmacy are co-sponsoring the chapel service.
