Haiti earthquake relief by Packard Children's team

This new video from Lucile Packard Children's Hospital shows footage shot by a team of doctors and nurses who went to Haiti Feb. 2 - 16 as part of the earthquake relief efforts. The caregivers traveled by boat to a remote village where most people had never been seen by a Western physician. They established a clinic now being run by other volunteers in the international relief effort.

The team, led by pediatric hospitalist physician Daniel Imler, MD, also included pediatric hospitalist Joseph Kim, MD, and nurses Rich Ramos, RN; Katie Purdy, RN; and Elena Hopkins, RN.

More coverage of the team's trip to Haiti is available here.
