I just completed a rather substantial blog about the Haiti disaster medical response and my DMAT's deployment. Warning: it includes a bit of a rant on people that would be critical of said response. It also includes some interview material for a JEMS article I wrote in 2008 that was never published (not due to JEMS). Those thoughts illustrate why disaster medical workers do what they do. If interested, you can find it here at thesambradley.blogspot.com. I'd love it if you leave a comment here or there.


You also might be interested in another disaster blog by a friend of mine, Deanna Polk, called “Global RN” at  www.globalrn.blogspot.com.

In the meantime, here are a couple articles from the NYTimes that might be interesting:
International SOS and Evacuations (they do more than just man oil rigs)
