Please save the evening of January 14th, 2011 hosted by Partners In Health to commemorate the year anniversary of the earthquake that devastated our beloved Haiti. This event will take place in Boston and streamed live on the web.
We hope you will join us in remembering those who lost their lives and in honoring those unsung heroes who have worked tirelessly to rebuild their country.
