PA Faculty aids earthquake victims in Japan

Emory PA faculty member Jeri Sumitani traveled to Japan for a week  to join a DMAT team in the Sendai area to assist in healthcare delivery to those affected by the earthquake/tsunami.  Jeri was part of a team of US-based Japanese clinicians (MD, RN, NP, PA) who  teamed up with the Tokushukai TMAT crew  already on the ground and have been working tirelessly to serve the quake victims, including critically ill/hospitalized patients at local healthcare facilities and "displaced" individuals who are awaiting resolution at evacuation centers.  Here are some of Jeri's pictures:
