University of Iowa doctor gathering team to help in Haiti

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A University of Iowa emergency physician is trying to gather a team of doctors to travel to Haiti.

Dr. Christopher Buresh hopes to leave for the devastated country in the next day or so. He returned from Haiti this past weekend, just before the earthquake struck. Once he returns, he anticipates that he'll be treating victims with mangled limbs and infections resulting from untreated injuries.

He has been working with Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty to secure a spot on a Minnesota National Guard transport, to get to Haiti as quickly as possible.
