Yadin David: International Humanitarian

September 22nd, 2010

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.

Biomed Community Rallying for Haiti Relief

January 18th, 2010

In response to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated Haiti last week, Yadin David, EdD, PE, CCE, FAIMBE, FACCE, is compiling a list of biomed volunteers willing to lend a hand.

David, a founder and first president of the American College of Clinical Engineering, will communicate the list to the World Health Organization and the Pan American Health Organization, among other support groups. Biomeds interested in adding their names to the list should also include an area of expertise, if applicable.

David is also exploring alternate means of assisting those in Haiti. “We’ll need other donations in the form of basic supplies and equipment and I’m working on the logistics to accomplish that,” he writes in a letter to the biomed community.

To learn how you can assist aid efforts, and to add your name to the list of volunteers, e-mail David.
