Haiti still on the road to recovery 2 years after earthquake


We're getting an update on recovery efforts in Haiti on the anniversary of a devastating earthquake.  Two years ago, the country was rocked by a 7.0 earthquake.  The disaster killed more than 150,000 people and left thousands without shelter, food and water.  Wayne Street went to Haiti last year with a team from Mayo Clinic Health System.  "Our teams went into Port-au-Prince in order to combat the cholera outbreak and the massive health care stresses the country was facing at that time," says Wayne Street, Mayo Clinic Health System Nursing Trauma Director.  Additional Haiti coverage that mentions Mayo: CBN News
