New Stanford Hospital team ready to mobilize for disaster relief

New Stanford Hospital team ready to mobilize for disaster relief

When Stanford Hospital staff members volunteered to participate in a relief mission to post-earthquake Haiti last year, they were stunned over the number of deaths that could have been prevented had emergency medical services been available just a few days sooner. As highlighted in the video above, their initial shock led to the creation of the Stanford Emergency Medicine Program for Emergency Response, a team that will be able to mobilize immediately in response to a global disaster.
