Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

This summer four members of the #GeisingerFamily volunteered at the 2017 National Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. “We took care of over 100 fractures, flew several individuals to trauma centers, and successfully resuscitated one cardiac arrest,” says Dr. Doug Kupas, emergency medicine physician and medical director at the Jamboree. The two-week event had over 35,000 participants and during that time the town of Glen Jean, WV, was the second biggest city in the state. “Geisinger Pharmacist, Bill Henning, and I volunteered and used our vacation time to be there.  Two medical students came with us as part of a wilderness medicine rotation.” Elisa Giusto a graduate from Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) says “It was a thrilling educational experience, working alongside National Guard medics, pediatricians, emergency physicians, family doctors, EMTs and nurses from across the country to ensure the Scouts were given optimal medical care despite our limited resources working out of a tent.” #GeisingerStories #BoyScoutJamboree
