irene: doctor, doctor

spent the day in the isolated towns of rochester, pittsfield and stockbridge with a dartmouth doctor who was overseeing temporary clinics up there staffed by RNs and PA-Cs from maine. it was kind of shit, really, because they didn’t treat a ton of people (it was a sunday) and i couldn’t make pictures of the people they DID treat. i did what i could. dr. bob drove around a lot assessing damage for possible health risks. he also made sure that the clinics had enough medication and equipment to last.

at least the clinics were in beautiful, unexpected places. i didn’t mind so much.
