I traveled to Fort Walton Beach Tuesday night and then to Atlanta Wednesday morning early to await government orders and transport to Haiti. The commander of our group left on Wednesday, but the plane had a near mid-air collision and was diverted to a different location, and with it our supplies, so that delayed our departure.

Our team is made up of 34 people, including doctors, nurses, physician assistants and logistics persons. We are joining another team just like ours as well as a team of 50 surgeons that are all heading down at the same time.

We’re boarding our plane in Atlanta (today) on a direct flight to Haiti and have been told that we are the first group of American surgeons and nurses to head down.”
