A “Live in the D” segment featured the relief efforts of Wayne State University students following the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The students, Sarah Draugelis, a graduate of Wayne State’s pre-med program, Erik Brown, an MD/PhD student, and computer science student Kevin Zurek, established an electronic medical record system that they used in mobile clinics throughout Haiti. They arrived in Port-au-Prince and travelled in a small boat to an island where they built a little hut to host their clinic. It wasn't long before hundreds of people lined up for medical services. Andrian Marcus, associate professor of computer science, also commented in the story.
