In Haiti, Jacky was a physician and trained in infectious diseases. When he came to the US, it was difficult for him to find a job in medicine, especially given major licensing barriers. He was part of a mid-career internship program between Upwardly Global and the NY Presbyterian to help propel internationally trained immigrants into roles in the healthcare system. He was hired by New York-Presbyterian in a full-time public health role and continued to prepare to relicense, scoring high on exams that he studied for at night. He was recently given a coveted residency in Brooklyn.
