Dr. Steven Landau, a family physician from Smithfield, N.C. rushed to Haiti after the earthquake to do his part in the relief effort. He was not prepared for the emotional toll of the experience. He tells us what he saw and how he coped.
Dr. Landau is not alone in how his experience in Haiti changed him. Dr. Jean Ford, a professor of epidemiology at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health also went to the quake-ravaged region and he says the visit changed his life. Dr. Ford was born in Haiti and moved to the U.S. when he was 16 years old.
