Using frontline medicine in wake of Harvey

As floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey rose, heroes emerged to help the community any way they could. For some, it was rescues by boats and large vehicles. Still others, like Todd Kielman, physician assistant and instructor in the Department of Urology and an Army veteran, lent their expertise at shelters for  evacuees.
