Hurricane Maria Emergency Response - Puerto Rico: Can you volunteer?

Tom Kenyon, MD, MPH, CEO of HOPE (and a UAHS Pediatrics graduate, 1982) is asking UAHS professionals to help in Puerto Rico. 

At this time, Project HOPE is actively engaged with emergency response efforts in Puerto Rico. HOPE has a team on the ground to conduct an initial needs assessment to see where Project HOPE can fill a gap, and make an impact. 

There is a high demand for volunteers with Spanish-speaking skills. Specific specialties are still to be determined, but we anticipate a strong need for infectious disease specialists, internal medicine/family medicine physicians, nurse practitioner, registered nurses, WASH specialists, and mental health professionals. 

If you’re interested in volunteering your time and expertise to this response effort, please contact and email Rachel Ray at to confirm.

Additional Information:
Ability to lift 30 pounds, have complete mobility, and work in a disaster environment.
