Since my last message, I had the opportunity to represent the Academy in Hawaii for the National Medical Association Meeting and then in the latter part of August, went into full action with Hurricane Dorian’s projected path predicted to make landfall in Florida. After activation and preparation, on Friday, August 30th at 11:00pm ET, Dorian turned and during a period of almost 48 hours, devastated Abaco and caused severe damage to the Grand Bahamas, our neighbor country separated by only a 30-45 minute flight or boat ride. No federal mandate came through, but Miami and Miami Beach could not stand and watch our Bahamian brothers and sisters and do nothing. Thus, several teams were mobilized and deployed. As we all know, the initial hours are crucial to the outcome of a disaster. No words can describe what my team found once we were on the ground in Abaco: the shredded town with death lingering around us.
