INMED Board’s Richard Randolph Aiding Houston
September 1st, 2017 by Nicholas Comninellis
Today is Richard Randolph’s birthday, and like so many first responders, he’s foregone the lighter side of life to give life-preserving care in these hours since Hurricane Harvey struck Houston. Dr. Randolph, a Director on INMED’s Board, is also Chief Medical Officer for Heart to Heart International, whose mobile Disaster Response unit is providing clinical care to the thousands of Texans who have lost primary medical services.
Dr. Randolph is a family physician from the Kansas City area who first distinguished himself as a West Point Military Academy graduate, adding credentials including the INMED Academic Qualification in International Medicine & Public Health, and appointed Medical Officer for Joint Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg. In 2015 Dr. Randolph shipped out to Liberia. On location at the Tappita Ebola Treatment Unit he served Ebola afflicted people for six months – just one of his extended deployments since 1993 providing healthcare in seven different nations.
This week Dr. Randolph again diligently applies his hard-won insight on behalf of Americans in acute distress. Let’s all of us look for opportunities to share an encouraging word with these goodhearted volunteers!
