Today on the show we have EMS physician Dr. Kasia Hampton back after her medical tour in Ukraine to assist doctors and facilities there. Dr. Hampton studied medical school in Belgium before moving to the U.S. for her medical training in emergency medicine and pediatric medicine. She worked in the U.S. Army for five years as a civil service physician before moving to St. Louis in June 2021, where she worked an EMS fellow with Washington University.
Dan Zehner from NHERI (Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure) comes back on the show to bring us the preliminary StEER data collected during and after Hurricane Ian. StEER (Structural Extreme Events Reconnaissance) is a crowd-sourced network of public and private individuals who go into areas following disasters and track damage caused by the event to structures and infrastructure.
