A Life of Medicine, Social Entrepreneurism, Impact, and Innovation

Although I was born in Brooklyn New York, I was raised in Mexico as a child until the age of 8.  After a " real world education" as a musician / piano tuner, a Con Ed meter reader and a NYC cab driver,  I received my GED and I went back to college, dedicating my life to improving emergency care, and  decreasing pain and suffering, especially among Spanish speaking and other marginalized populations.  As an emergency physician, I have seen over 80,000 patients in emergency departments, worked in various private, public, and academic settings. I have won the highest international honors in my field.  I have seen humanity at its very best and its very worst.  An example of this was my service as a Medical Officer during the WTC 911 Disaster

My grandparents were born slaves in 1860 and my father was born in 1898. True to my family's values (my parents were both civil rights activists), and wanting to make a change in the world, I began to focus on what it would take to become my version of a change agent.  I slowly made the transition to becoming a "Social Entrepreneur".  I realized that the  roots of social change have to go beyond non -profit models and I started what ultimately became an impact enterprise in 2002.  Although Social Business may not be able to solve all of the world’s problems, I am convinced we have to develop a new norm: enterprise with a social contract.  I brought my company through the B Certification process.

It is often said that "knowledge is power".  With knowledge, skills and abilities in low resource areas, the health care providers can best determine what resources are needed to do their excellent work. Now with telemedicine and mHealth technology, a higher quality care will soon be within most peoples reach. The PACEMD Program in Mexico has trained over 41,000 health care providers and another 6,000 lay people.. We have pioneered in the areas community based training of emergency obstetricscommunity cardiac care, traumapediatrics and neonatal , disaster medicine and other areas.  We have changed public policy and integrated new, innovative processes and have spawned and inspired many community-based training centers.  In the MedSpanish Program , we have trained over 500 US health care providers in how to communicate with their Spanish speaking patients. ( There are over 50,000,000 Spanish speaekers in the United States, 10,000,000 Monolingual) 

 We are literally redefining the tools of training as a leverage for infrastructure development and innovation. We have been proud to be have been considered a "Top 10 Social Impact Enterprise " in Latin America and are now pioneering with strategic partners in the areas of mHealth/Telemedicine, Palliative Care and have an interest in “Promotora  based models” of health care.  We have been especially  inspired by our work with parteras in Chiapas and plan to improve care for all out to the last kilometer.  Through my work at PACE, and through my other clinical and telemedicine work,  I am uniquely committed and positioned to significantly improve the health care outcomes of Latino populations.
