El Paso Physicians Step Up to Help Care for Immigrants Caught in Border Crisis

El Paso physicians, in coordination with the  Border Regional Advisory Council, are stepping up to help Central American immigrants (children, parents and/or guardians) being flown into the city to be processed by US Customs and Border Protection. Around 140 immigrants will arrive daily from July 9-12.  Texas physicians want to ensure every child and mother receives the care they need. TMA president Austin King, MD, says, “Medical aid not only protects the Central American refugees, but it also protects U.S. residents from potential serious and deadly diseases. Taking care of these people who have traveled days is the humanitarian and right thing to do.”

The following El Paso physicians are standing by to help: Jose Burgos, MD; Randy Goldstein, MD; Carlos Gutierrez, MD; Gilberto A. Handal, MD; Azalia Martinez, MD; Ascension Mena, MD; David Palafox, MD; Nancy Torres, MD; and Bruce Applebaum, MD.
