After going to Haiti last year to provide dental care, UWSoD student Inna Piskorska could have rested on her laurels; after all, not many perform that kind of humanitarian work while still in school. Instead, she started planning a second, larger outing.
“On May 25, 2004, my son, Army Specialist Rory Dunn, was on escort duty for a civil service team just outside Fallujah, when a daisy-chained IED hidden in a tree overhanging the road on which he was traveling was detonated by remote control as his Humvee passed underneath.

Ed. Note: UWSoD Student Inna Piskorska is following up her recent trip to Haiti with another humanitarian dental effort, this time to the island of Jamaica, the fifth-largest island country in the Caribbean. While there, the group of 24 volunteers are providing free dental care to the those in need. This is the second of two blog posts.
