William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine students demonstrated how telemedical kits delivered by disaster drones could be used to assist victims and rescue personnel during a simulated mass casualty event on Dec. 6 at John Bell Williams Airport in Bolton. The development of the disaster drones is a joint project with the unmanned aerial systems program at Hinds Community College. The technology debuted before an audience including representatives from Homeland Security, federal law enforcement agencies, and the United Nations.

 

The Telemedical Drone project, known as HiRO (Health Integrated Rescue Operations), was developed by Italo Subbarao, DO, senior associate dean at WCUCOM, and Guy Paul Cooper Jr., a fourth-year medical student at WCUCOM.
