um and haiti January 23, 2010

Posted by Bradley in : um , trackback

This week there are some very real reasons to be proud to be associated with UM, described in Donna Shalala’s most recent letter to the community about UM’s efforts to help with the recent tragedy in Haiti. For example:

Led by Dr. Barth Green, chair and professor of neurological surgery, our immediate response efforts have focused on our team of Miller School of Medicine experts who arrived in Haiti less than 24 hours after the quake hit. Physicians and nurses from the University and Jackson Memorial Medical Center were some of the first responders to begin treating hundreds of earthquake victims. Since January 13, more than 100 UM doctors, nurses, and other personnel have traveled to Haiti. Working with limited supplies and in crude facilities, they have fought against the clock to save lives, provide compassionate care, and ease suffering.
