The Doctors Travel to Haiti
THE HOSTS OF THE DOCTORS TRAVEL TO HAITI TO OFFER MEDICAL ASSISTANCE AND TRANSPORT MUCH-NEEDED MEDICAL SUPPLIES FOR THE WORLDWIDE RELIEF EFFORT
Dr. Travis Stork, along with co-hosts, OB/GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson, plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon, and renowned pediatrician Dr. James Sears, arrived on a chartered cargo plane loaded with over seven thousand pounds of much-needed medical supplies, specifically requested by aid organizations, including bandages, antibiotics, anti-infectives, basic first aid ointments, sanitizers and instruments, all made possible by generous donations from Medical Assistance Programs International, Med Wish International, Intelligent First Aid, More Prepared, Biotex Laboratory Services, Plantation General Hospital & Westside Regional Medical Center (part of the Hospital Corporation of America) as well as other groups.
"The situation is grim," states Stork, "and it will not change anytime soon. What we see and do in Haiti will become part of future episodes of THE DOCTORS so that we can keep the need for aid fresh in the minds of our viewers long after the headlines fade."
