The Worcester Telegram and Gazette interviewed pharmacist Emilio J. Mastrodomenico for a June 13 feature story about his role with the Worcester-based Massachusetts-2 Disaster Medical Assistance Team, one of two Massachusetts-based disaster response units. 

A consultant pharmacist and drug utilization reviewer for Commonwealth Medicine’s Clinical Pharmacy Services, Mastrodomenico has been deployed 26 times over the past 23 years to some of the worst disaster scenes: the World Trade Center, New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and, most recently, Haiti. 

The 81-year-old Mastrodomenico was recently honored for his 23 years of dedication to DMAT, receiving the National Disaster Medical System’s Thomas J. Shepardson Leadership Award on May 3 in Grapevine, Texas. The award recognized his leadership, vision, service and commitment.
