  • Overview

    PA Eric Holden hasn't had time to eat or sleep much since arriving in Haiti. He is one of two physician assistants on the team of NYC Medics, a medical volunteer organization treating the sick and injured following the January 12th earthquake in Haiti. In their first two days on the job, he and his team of medical professionals treated more than 800 patients, traveling from makeshift tent city to tent city, providing care where it's needed. Host Lisa Dandrea Lenell talks to Mr. Holden from the front lines of the medical tent, where they have teamed up with the US Army's 82nd Airborne division to treat everything from pelvic fractures to dehydration. They discuss the difficulty of treating patients without the proper drugs and medical supplies.
