#TeamTuesday: Emergency department technician Schuyler Wong describes his job as “doing whatever I can to make life easier for the doctors, nurses, patients and family.” That even includes vehicle repair, as Schuyler was recognized as a Uteam Member of the Month (our version of Employee of the Month) after a patient’s family member discovered his tire was flat and Schuyler changed it for him. The family member described Schuyler as “one of the nicest and most helpful people I have met.”
Schuyler has been working at UVA for four years and also works in our Life Support Learning Center. When he’s not working, he volunteers with the rescue squad and enjoys cooking.
This is how the UVA IR nursing staff showed appreciation to their technologists. Wait until you see what they did! <3

"UVA Telemedicine travelled with Care for Peace to Myanmar to assess technology and connectivity in the Rakhine State. From the former capital of Yangon we took a flight to the coastal city of Kyauk Pyu. Our trip continued via supply boat, traveling with the tides through a mangrove forest to a shipwright's village. Another fifteen minutes via motorbike brought us to Pantaw Pyin village. After visiting a medical clinic built by Care for Peace we were invited to lunch at the local buddhist temple, only to find a little piece of home."
