Many healthcare providers talk about going on medical mission trips but few ever take the time out of their lives to actually do so. Erik Kramer CRNA FNP not only served humanity on a mission trip but he has done many! Erik and his family spent 5 years in a small rural hospital in Mexico where he provided anesthesia, emergency and critical care service as well as encountered the Sicario Cartel daily. He went to Mosul where he took care of victims of war from both sides and witnessed some horrific cases. Finally he went to the Congo where he and one other FNP ran an ebola clinic which acted as a triage center in which they identified, treated and saved patients with ebola! Listen in as you hear a man who feels a calling to help those in need through love and service. It is an amazing story you do not want to miss!
