SCCM Member and disaster management expert Marie R. Baldisseri, MD, MPH, FCCM, is helping Italy remotely with their COVID-19 response plans. Dr. Baldisseri shares her knowledge about the situation in Italy and talks about what drives her to respond in times of crisis.
With a career focused on global health and disaster medicine, Dr. Baldisseri has served for many years as an educator for SCCM’s SCCM’s Fundamentals programs. Her evolving role to provide on-the-ground response was solidified in 2010 when, on behalf of SCCM, she led a team of critical care professionals to Haiti after its devastating earthquake. “Haiti and the Dominican Republic asked the Society . . . to help them fix their infrastructure . . . and to help them respond very, very quickly.” Since then, her involvement in the Fundamentals program has grown. In 2012 she served as editor of SCCM’s Preparing Your ICU for Disaster Response.
