Emergency Medicine Team Enters Gaza
Emergency Medicine Team Enters Gaza

One day after the ceasefire in Gaza, PCRF sent a three-member emergency medicine team from the USA to the Gaza Strip to assess emergency medical needs and help guide effective interventions on the ground to those most in need. Dr. Besh Barcega, an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics at Loma Linda University, led the team that included Dr. Ngoc Bui, a specialist in pediatric emergency medicine, and emergency department nurse Rana Zeidan from Orlando, FL.

Dr. Barcega is the head of our Emergency Medicine committee on our Medical Advisory Board, helping to guide PCRF in the most effective way to respond to the urgent and long-term needs in this field of medicine.
