Haitian Relief Update

More seismic shocks were reported in Haiti this week, as physicians, nurses and other health care professionals continue to treat victims of the earthquake that destroyed much of Port au Prince and surrounding communities. Stormy weather and muddy conditions added to the challenges faced by relief workers seeking to help get the island nation back on its feet.

NBC 17 in Raleigh reported on Wednesday about a group of Duke physicians who had just returned from caring for patients in Haiti.  See the report by Jaclyn Asztalos at:  http://nbc17.mync.com/site/news/story/48303/duke-doctors-return-from-haiti.

Larry Pomilio of the Global Volunteer Network <<hot link to webpage http://www.globalvolunteernetwork.org/ >> was in Haiti coordinating volunteers when he videotaped the work being done by Steven Landau, MD, of Smithfield, at the AMURT clinic in Haiti.  View the video at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCqtIGV4VoE.

Dr. Landau is planning a return trip to Haiti and is looking for physicians and nurses who might like to accompany him.  He can be contacted at [email protected] or at 919-284-4149.
