This week, eleven clinical staff from University of Connecticut Health Center are volunteering for a medical humanitarian mission in Port au Prince, Haiti organized by International Medical Corps.
They left Connecticut on March 18th and will be there for 16 days. Below is a photo of UConn physicians Lynn Kosowicz and Susan Levine:
Thanks to Dr. Cato Laurencin’s blog for providing an update about this humanitarian mission.
I bet there will be many compelling stories to be heard about their clinical (and life) experiences when this group returns.
UCHC now has a channel on YouTube.com.
An interview on YouTube (filmed Feb 18 2010) shows physicians Robert Fuller, medical director of UCHC Emergency Department, and Stanford University surgeon Paul Auerbach who were among the first emergency medical response teams to arrive in the capital city after the Jan 12th earthquake.
