Mt. Lebanon Native Headed To Haiti On Medical Relief Trip

Mt. Lebanon native Dr. Maureen Tighe, a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist with a practice in Dormont, is headed to Haiti on a medical relief trip on Tuesday, February 9 with the Society for Haitian Arts and Culture.

From Maureen:

"We are gathering medical supplies and small donations for the trip.  If you would like to be a part of the effort, no donation is too small.  All proceeds will go towards purchasing medical supplies.  Please make check to Trillium Natural Medicine.  My address is 3043 West Liberty Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15216.  For more information about this organization who is sponsoring the relief trip, go to www.shacnorthwest.org."

The crisis in Haiti is far from over.  Please help if you can.

Update from Maureen, 2/9/10, 2:20 p.m.  Maureen just called me from the Philadelphia airport -- she's on her way to Haiti!  She indicated that her accountant suggested checks for this effort be made payable to her (Maureen Tighe) and not her medical practice.  Maureen is heartened by the outpouring of support from residents -- when she got to her office this past weekend, she was overwhelmed by the number of contributions that had arrived in the mail.  Thanks to all and, most of all, to Maureen!
