NYC Action Medical presents a talk + Q&A
Roger Benham is an experienced street medic who has worked in post-disaster regions, including Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, and New York City after Superstorm Sandy. Laura Gonzalez-Conty is a physician from Puerto Rico and current New York resident. They have both recently come back from Puerto Rico, where they worked with Sanando Puerto Rico, a self organized medical team providing care on the island post Maria. They will speak about their experiences there, the work that is being done, and the resources that are needed, as well as answer questions. This event is sponsored by New York Action Medical, a local street medic community.
