Subject: Free Health Resources for Haiti Earthquake Medical Responders
No-cost Health Resources for Haiti Earthquake First Responders
[apologies for cross-posting]
Please circulate the resources below to all medical teams involved in
Haiti response. Please include civilian and military teams in Haiti and in
neighboring countries receiving patients from Haiti. Also include teams
planning a future response, as well as those already on the ground.
Emergency operations centers and those providing information and
logistical support for medical teams may also be interested. As
librarians, we know there's a lot that could be said about any of these
resources, but the descriptions are brief so that health professionals can
quickly scan them. Thanks, - Elizabeth Norton
