Michael Millin, a physician and disaster medicine expert in the Johns Hopkins Department of Emergency Medicine, has been deployed to Haiti as part of the New Jersey Disaster Medical Assistance Team. He serves as medical officer for the team, which is trained and equipped to be self-sufficient in the field in disaster zones.
Millin's team will assist with trauma patients at a medical base set up at a golf course near Port-au-Prince. Due to communications issues in Haiti, Millin has not been in contact with Hopkins officials since his deployment late last week.

Karen Schneider, a Catholic nun with the Sisters of Mercy and a Johns Hopkins pediatric emergency doctor, made her way to Haiti from Baltimore late last week and helping care for earthquake victims. Traveling with Schneider were six residents in Haiti for a tropical medicine elective. In Schneider's last communication to contacts at Hopkins this past weekend, she reported working on trauma patients in a U.N. medical tent set up at the Port-au-Prince Airport.
