Providing medical care to typhoon survivors in the Philippines

SEMPER - smallYesterday we wrote about a Stanford team who had traveled to the Philippines to provide medical assistance to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. Members of SEMPER, each carrying an average of 160 lbs of equipment, arrived on Saturday and completed their first full day of providing medical care on Monday.

The team, pictured to the right, reports that there are "clear signs of recovery" but says the devastation from the typhoon is enormous. They're chronicling their experiences on a blog, which you can read here.
