Disaster Preparedness

This episode of PEM Currents: The Pediatric Emergency Medicine Podcast is all about disaster medicine. I interviewed Brent Kaziny, Disaster Medicine and Preparedness expert who was in training during Hurricane Katrina and lead efforts in Houston during Hurricane Harvey. Brent shares practical tips on how you can get involved and how you can learn what resources your institution has.
