MEDICAL VOLUNTEER/PHILANTHROPIC ACTIVITIES
Vietnam Village Health (VVH) June 2012 – Medical mission trip to Vietnam, 8 different clinic days set up through catholic parishes throughout the country, the VVH team served over 2,100 underprivileged children and adults. I also taught pharmacy and medical students how to perform field medicine in makeshift clinics set up at local catholic churches throughout the villages. My short-term goals are to develop a scholarship fund for OSU-COM medical students interested in medical mission work and to establish a trust with the non-profit organization VVH to provide medications/supplies and continue treatment plans initiated by our medical team.

Duties as a “sub-investigator” include: enroll pediatric patients in the studies, participate in training modules, help review research protocols, and analyze data with the OSU Center for Health Sciences Research Department.

Astella APPLES                                                                                                                                
Prospective, pediatric longitudinal evaluation, to assess the long-term safety of Tacrolimus ointment for the treatment of atopic dermatitis.

GSK Protocol HIB-097 (112957)                                                                                                  
Partially double-blind clinical study to evaluate consistency and immunogenicity of 3 lots of GSK Biologicals’ HiB vaccine 208108 versus ActHiB and Pentacel at 2, 4, 6, and 15-18 months of age in healthy infants.

Sanofi Hexavalent Study
Phase III, randomized, partially double-blind, active-comparator-controlled, lot-to-lot consistency clinical study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of V419 in healthy infants when given at 2, 4, and 6 months of age concomitantly with PREVNAR-13 and RotaTeq.
               
Novartis Protocol V59P23

RESEARCH (PRIMARY INVESTIGATOR)

Cowboys Get Healthy, Get Fit: A Medical-Community Collaborative Program for Healthy Lifestyle Changes in Overweight & Obese Children – Outcome Analysis of BMI, Aerobic Fitness, and Lifestyle Behaviors
Retrospective study to assess the effects of the medical-community* partnership collaborative program called “Cowboys Get Healthy, Get Fit”, specifically designed for healthy lifestyle changes in overweight & obese children ages 10-16. (*Medical-community model wherein overweight or obese children receive systematic staged-approach intervention as outlined by the Expert Committee Recommendations published in Pediatrics Journal August 2007, coupled with local community  partnerships to maximize obesity treatment). This is the first retrospective study on childhood obesity from Oklahoma, in collaboration with the local YMCA and Oklahoma’s premier Stage 3 & 4 comprehensive obesity treatment center called “Family Health and Nutrition Clinic”. The results derived from this study will be used for program improvements and will further support a medical-community model wherein obese or overweight children receive systematic staged intervention coupled with local community partnerships to treatment and intervention.

Pediatric Palliative Care
Quality Improvement (QI) project with the Department of Hematology/Oncology at St. Francis Children’s Hospital to develop a new pediatric palliative curriculum for pediatric and pediatric/ medicine residents in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The curriculum was created based on the extrapolated survey results completed by osteopathic and allopathic resident physicians, with 16 comprehensive domains measuring physician self-confidence, clinical skills, and concerns about pediatric end-of-life care. Didactic modules will include topics such as nausea/vomiting, dyspnea, delirium, artificial hydration, constipation, depression, and pain management. Clinical modules will include discussions on DNR, hospice, psychosocial issues, breaking bad news, and cultural awareness. Residents will be surveyed at least quarterly to measure progress and document changes in confidence while completing the didactic and clinical modules. The curriculum will last for approximately 18 months, designed to be repeated at least twice during the 3-year pediatric residency.

Helium/Oxygen-Driven Albuterol Nebulization in the Management of Children with Status Asthmaticus
Development phase. Randomized, prospective, double-blinded study to compare the initial response of albuterol nebulized in Heli-Ox versus control in the management of moderate to severe asthma in children presenting to the pediatric emergency department.
