Lisa Van Husen was on lock-down during the manhunt for bomb suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev when she took the call from the reporter. The surgical pathologist assistant is one of several travelers who were on assignment in Boston during what is being touted as the worst domestic terrorist attack since 9/11. Their stories were captured in an article for Healthcare Traveler. Here's an excerpt: "You never know what new experience you'll gain while on assignment, including ones outside of your control.

The two blasts killed three people and injured more than 140, prompting swift and heroic action by emergency responders and medical personnel, including traveling healthcare professionals. Van Husen says it's an experience she will never forget. Read her story here.
