Port-Au-Prince, Haiti – Aug. 5, 2016 – Dr. Bernard Fialkoff, Periodontist and Dental Implant Surgeon of Bayside, New York, and President and Founding Sponsor of Foundation for A Drug Free World of The Americas Chapter, traveled to Haiti to meet with the National Council of Drugs (CONALD) and sign an accord for national implementation of the Drug Free World program along with CONALD Director Dr. Martineau Guerrier. On the trip, Dr. Fialkoff also trained the national drug counselors along with Bishop Dr. Lubin Moise, Haiti Director of Drug Free World, and presented events throughout the city including to hundreds of the country’s Scouts. Dozens of local television and radio covered the signing of the accord by Dr. Martine Guerrier and other representatives of the Haitian government.
Dr. Fialkoff said, “It is important to share the knowledge we have gained as adults with our children. They are the future generation and can be helped to avoid problems that we went through in our lives. As a doctor, one of our roles is to help our community, and that’s why I support the Drug Free World initiatives.” Along with being Cuban born and valedictorian of his dental class of Stony Brook University, Dr. Fialkoff utilized his foreign language speaking skills and position as a doctor to help millions of those in need as will now occur with the new Haitian accord. Drug Free World will provide free drug education materials, booklets, curricula and other supplies to the country in order to deter drug abuse in the country.
In addition to his work overseas, Dr. Fialkoff also sponsored more than 15 drug education booths citywide during National Night Out, then volunteers at the booths giving out more than 7500 free drug education booklets in one night. Dr. Fialkoff elicited the help from local dentists and their staffs to volunteer at the booths as well as members of the National Latino Officers Association of America, YMCA and others. Co-sponsors of the Drug Free World booth included CONALD, CG Consultants, International Human Rights Commission, Bronx YMCA, PAL, Laterna Restaurant and the National Latino Officers Association of America under the leadership of President Anthony Miranda.
