July 17th, 2015 by INMED
At the 2015 Exploring Medical Missions Conference we enjoyed the pleasure of recognizing Hilarie Cranmer, a physician in the Department of Emergency Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Director of their Global Disaster Response unit. She has served in post-conflict Kosovo, tsunami-affected Indonesia and Sri Lanka, hurricane-impacted Louisiana, earthquake-devastated Haiti and Arab-spring affected Tunisia.
With the 2014 emergence of Ebola, Dr. Cranmer was appointed Technical Advisor for Ebola Response for the International Medical Corps, providing high-level training for in-country health care workers, and for coordinating direct patient care in the affected countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Throughout, Dr. Cranmer uses her experience in disaster response to help prepare leaders in the fields of emergency medicine and humanitarian crises.
