Ukraine Medical Update with Dr. Kasia Hampton
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.
We talk with her about the challenges Ukrainian facilities and staff have with incoming medical supplies donations from around the world. With numerous manufacturers, product standards and sizes, and equipment shortages, it requires ingenuity to make efficient use of what they have available.
This episode is hosted by Jamie Davis and Sam Bradley.
