Allan Drash Clinical Fellowship 2018

Marie-Edelyne St. Jacques

was awarded the Allan Drash Clinical Fellowship for 2018

Dr. Marie-Edelyne St. Jacques is a general pediatrician and working as an intensive care physician at the St Damien Hospital Tabarre, Haiti. As a member of the Haitian Pediatric Society, she also provides care at an outpatient volunteer clinic for underserved children headed by the St Joseph de Cluny Sisters.
Dr. St. Jacques obtained her medical degree in 2008 from the Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy of the State University of Haiti, followed by a one-year social service at Our Lady of Nativity Hospital at a secondary health care center in Belladere, Haiti.
After one year of practicing as a general practitioner, her love for children and the desire to help children and families coping with health issues brought her to pursue further training in pediatrics. She completed her pediatric residency at the State University Hospital and was nominated chief resident in her final year. Following completion of her residency, she complemented her training in Haiti with a two-month observership at the Cardinal Glennon Hospital at Missouri, USA.
As one of her areas of interest since her residency, Dr. St. Jacques has been teaching as an assistant professor at the State University Medical School and the Medical School of University Notre Dame of Haiti.
As a critical care provider in a low-resource country without any pediatric endocrinologists Dr. St. Jacques is frequently faced with severely ill children with complicated endocrine issues including diabetic ketoacidosis. While striving to provide them with the best quality of care in spite of the local limitations, she has started to implement education for patients with diabetes and their families after diagnosis, helping them to manage their condition and prevent recurrence of ketoacidosis.
Since learning about the Pediatric Endocrinology Education Program for Haiti (a program aimed at implementing pediatric endocrinology in Haiti) she regularly participates in pediatric endocrine and diabetes training sessions. By completing ISPAD’s Allan Drash fellowship, Dr. St. Jacques aims to increase her knowledge in diabetes management in order to contribute to improve quality of life for children with diabetes in her country, working towards equitable care and social justice.
