The practitioners at the Burn Center at Rhode Island Hospital share their knowledge with the world. David Harrington, MD, leads a group of committed professionals on regular missions to develop professional relationships with burn centers in the developing world.
The team has visited Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Tegucigalpa, Honduras; and La Paz, Bolivia.
We take our role of service to the community seriously. We feel a responsibility above and beyond caring for patients and want to do more.
This desire leads us to plan for disasters, become involved in prevention and offer assistance to our community.
