Every year we at Florida Center For Allergy & Asthma Care prepare for back to school as if we were all going back to the classrooms ourselves. Why, do you ask, since you are an allergy practice?
Because one of our Core Values is Benevolence towards our local community and neighbors is an essential part of our longstanding reputation.
If you live in Dade, Broward or Palm Beach County you may know by now that FCAAC provides school supplies during the months of July and August. It is a pleasure seeing parents and children smile when they receive the supplies.
The happy surprise came last month when we received these pictures of children in Haiti with our coloring pencils.
Our efforts of supporting the community reached Haiti and delighted dozens of children thanks to Dr. Alphonse Dufreny and the mission for which he has dedicated extended hours and enthusiasm. We were delighted to see happy children and contribute to such an encompassing cause.
We have asked him a few questions.
