Doctor Senator Steve Dickerson went to the Philippines to help with typhoon relief

WKRN, Nashville News, Nashville Weather and Sports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It started with an email chain he received from fellow doctors last month. 

Within a week, State Senator Steve Dickerson of Nashville was in the Philippines helping people whose lives and limbs had been ravaged by the one of the worst typhoons the world has ever seen.

"We went out and treated whoever walked up, several hundred patients a day," Dr. Dickerson told News 2 on Tuesday. "I walked in thinking I was going to be doing surgery and maybe some fractures, cleaning up wounds and I turned into a primary care doctor." (link)
