SBHF is pleased to welcome Dr. Theo Jean-Baptiste back to St. Boniface Hospital as Monitoring & Evaluation Officer. In 2012 Theo worked at St. Boniface as a doctor on his Social Service rotation after graduating from medical school. Now he returns in a new role after completing two masters degrees in epidemiology and public health. Theo will be managing all of SBHF's monitoring and evaluation work, with funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, to improve our ability to track patient data and use it to improve care and effectiveness of our programs.
We talked to Dr. Theo about his path to this role at St. Boniface, and what he has noticed about SBHF's growth and changes over the past five years.
Dr. Theo Jean-Baptiste returns to SBHF to lead the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) Team. "I am pleased to be part of this team striving for excellence."
I got my MD from the medical school at the State University of Haiti, with a scholarship from the Haitian Education & Leadership Program (HELP). Then I did a Masters degree in Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology in the European Program in Pharmacovigilance and Pharmacoepidemiology (Eu2P). I did a second Master of Public Health with a concentration in epidemiology at University of Alabama at Birmingham as a Fulbright Scholar. I first worked at St. Boniface Hospital as a doctor during my social service year in 2012, and have had a good relationship with Dr. Pierre and Dr. Bernard. Dr. Pierre was one of my recommenders in the Fulbright program.
