Haiti Update: Listen to interview with Dr. Menon as he heads home #HaitiDrDispatch

For the past two weeks, I have blogged updates from my friend and college roommate, Dr. Anil Menon, as he used his emergency medical expertise to assist in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake. In all likelihood, this is Anil's last dispatch from Haiti itself, and it includes the audio from an interview he did with KCBS in which he praises the resilience of the Haitian people and describes some of the long term medical needs of the country. He sent it Friday January 29, 2010 at 09:12
