Currently, I serve as the medical director of the Childrens Emergency Transport Team at CHLA. Performing over 1,500 missions a year via ground, helicopter and fixed wing ambulances, the transport team is one of largest and busiest pediatric critical care transport teams in the world. The transport team not only transport pediatric patients within the United States but also traveled internationally with transports to and from distant lands such as Thailand, Australia, Germany and Mexico.
I was recently elected to the Executive Committee of the Section of Transport Medicine of the American Academy of Pediatrics and serves as the Chairperson of the 2004 AAP Conference on Neonatal/Pediatric Critical Care Transport Medicine which will be held in San Francisco.
I have given many television, radio and print interviews. I have been quoted in the Los Angeles Times and have appeared on Larry King Live and on BBC (British Broadcasting Company) Radio.
