Volunteering on MIA’s Jamaica missions since 2008, Chimene has recently joined our Board as our Resident and Medical Student Advisor for the Sugar Scholars program. Chimene says that her first exposure to global health care was with MIA. She enjoyed it so much she was hooked. We are very happy to have her expertise and our patients are happy to have her excellent and thoughtful care. Married with three children and two dogs, Chimene still finds leisure time to enjoy sewing, jewelry design, gardening and shopping. She has created some beautiful MIA logo jewelry to benefit the organization.
