Many in the clinical engineering field are familiar with Yadin David, CCE, thanks to his 25 years of dedication as director of biomedical engineering at Texas Children’s Hospital. Fewer know of David’s efforts to improve the safety of patients in developing countries.
David “regularly travels to China and South America to help those countries use medical technology more safely, and has traveled the world educating clinical engineers,” says Wayne Morse, CCE. David serves as a consultant to the Pan-American Health Organization and the World Health Organization.
David recently left Texas Children’s Hospital to launch a biomedical equipment consulting business. He has been named recipient of the 2008 ACCE Robert Morris Humanitarian Award.
For his contributions to the education of tomorrow’s biomedical equipment technicians, John Noblitt is the winner of the 2008 AAMI Foundation Educational Advancement Award.
