Video of The Day: “Made for New York: Meet Fritz Francois”

Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 1.14.29 AMOur video of the day is a clip from “Made For New York” which highlights Haitian born doctor Fritz Francois who is the Chief of Medicine at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital.

Fritz Francois remembers his first night in New York fondly—it was the Fourth of July, and 10-year-old Fritz was in awe of the city’s vibrant energy and dazzling fireworks. His father kidded him that the fireworks in the night sky were to celebrate his arrival from Haiti. It made Fritz believe that anything is possible here.

Fritz is now Chief of Medicine at NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital. Dr. Fritz Francois is #MadeforNNYewYork.
