Johns Hopkins Go Team Participation in the US Navy’s 2010 Continuing Promise Mission

Given the time and effort put into recruiting, training and maintaining a large cadre of deployable volunteers at Johns Hopkins, it is beneficial to allow members to serve in some fashion and gather experience during non-disaster times. 

Because of our MOU with the Navy, we are supporting the Navy’s ongoing humanitarian mission in the Caribbean and Central/South America (Operation Continuing Promise). Collaboration during non-disaster times allows Go Team members to provide humanitarian assistance, gain experience in delivering healthcare to underdeveloped nations and in austere conditions, and (in our case) to become familiar with Navy customs, standard operating procedures, and mission priorities.

Sixteen Go Team members participated in Continuing Promise 2010 and deployed for two weeks each aboard the USS Iwo Jima.

They provided support for medical clinics held ashore, onboard operations and procedures, and host nation disaster training in Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana and Suriname.
