In this episode of the Disaster Podcast, we welcome Raya Zoe El-Khoury Cupler. Raya is a junior at Chamberlain College of Nursing in Columbus, Ohio, has dedicated her time to working with refugee organizations delivering medical care to refugees of war and conflict zones in the Middle East.

In addition to her global health work, Raya serves as Director North and Chairwoman of the Legislation Education Committee for the National Student Nurses’ Association and was recently named a Johnson & Johnson Global Citizen Young Leader.

Raya shares her important work with various NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in and around Syria’s civil war. She says this war is different because some factions in it are actively targeting health care organizations like hospitals and first responders.
