Jean Marc Brissau

A January 28, 2010 post on The Huffington Post online praises Notre Dame’s Haiti Program and its efforts to combat the disease lymphatic filariasis. One of the Program’s leaders is Jean-Marc Brissau, who earned an LL.M. degree from the Notre Dame Law School’s Center for Civil and Human Rights.

“Our excellent hosts were the program’s administrators, Wesley Pierre and Jean-Marc Brissau, who have worked at [Notre Dame’s] Programe Filiarose for 15 years, and from what I saw, they were running the show, completely on top of the situation. Such great guys. Wes studied Computer Science in Port-au-Prince and one of his many, many tasks is to handle the logistical coordination of medical and computer equipment. Jean-Marc took a short leave of Leogane for the US to earn a master’s degree in International Human Rights from Notre Dame [Law School], all the while still helping to coordinate the program.”
