Parrilla Joins Relief Team in Puerto Rico

Parrilla Joins Relief in Puerto Rico

Edgardo Parrilla, MD PhD,  faculty in the Dept. of Pathology,  volunteered to fly to Puerto Rico to help with medical relief in response to the Hurricane Maria destruction. The group, First Medical Relief for Puerto Rico,  is comprised of 5 doctors, 1 nurse, and 2 paramedics. 

He sent these photos of the group from the Orlando airport, where they waited 3 days for a flight due to the conditions of the airport in PR, and then one at the Command Center in San Juan with the Mayor.
