Obrillant DAMUS

BIOGRAPHY 

Born in Petit-Goave (Haiti), Obrillant DAMUS successfully completed his Bachelor’s degree at the State University of Haiti, department of Applied Linguistics.  He received a certificate of excellence from The Haitian Students Association as the laureate of the admission contest organized by the said department. It is this honor that allowed him to be the recipient of a four-year scholarship (2001-2005) sponsored by the French government.

In 2006, Obrillant received a grant from the French government to pursue his Master of Science degree at The University of the West Indies and Guiana (UAG). With the support of Pascal Saffache, Dean of the college of Humanities and Social Sciences, Obrillant was able to secure a scholarship from the French Embassy in Haiti.  This scholarship helped him complete his second Masters (M2) at the University of Paris 8.  His MA thesis explored the subject of medical ethnology/anthropology and was prized by the organization Cancéropôle Île-de-France, recognizing his accomplishments and potential contributions to the scientific community.

In March 2008 the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF) awarded Obrillant a literary prize during the commemoration of the International Day of the Francophonie in the presence of his Excellency Abdou Diouf, secretary general of the Organization. The French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, also attended this commemoration.

Obrillant worked as an intern at the French Association of Sociology (AFS).  He has been working since November 2009 as an intern and volunteer at the National League Against Cancer under the supervision of Doctor Marc Keller, the appointed personnel in charge of International Affairs and Health and Social Services.

Doctor in Sociology, Obrillant defended his doctoral dissertation at the University of Paris 8 on December 7, 2011. Author and researcher, his research project focuses on the relationships between solidarity and cancer in Haiti. He has already published several books in France, has presented at many conferences and has participated in several colloquiums both in France and in the United States.

La soutenance de ma thèse "Solidarité et cancer en Haïti.  Étude menée auprès des patients atteints du cancer de la prostate et des soignants" a eu lieu le mercredi 7 décembre 2011 à l'Université de Paris VIII. J'ai reçu le grade de docteur de l'Université Paris VIII avec la mention très honorable. Cinq personnes ont composé le jury: Madame Dan Ferrand-Bechmann (directrice de la recherche), Monsieur Laennec Hurbon (directeur de recherche au CNRS), Monsieur Alain Giami (directeur de recherche à l'Inserm), Norbert Amsallem (coordonnateur de projets à l'INCA), Madame Marie Ménoret, Maître de Conférences en Sociologie à Paris 8.  Il y avait près de quarante personnes à la soutenance. Cette thèse a été réalisée en deux ans et quelques mois. Je n'ai pas obtenu de financement!
