A Fond Farewell….
A Warm Welcome…
We are pleased to announce the commitment of three new members to the NYCMedics Team! Familiar faces, Jake Dutton and Kathy Bequary, will also be taking on new roles.
Dr. Matthew Waxman is now Medical Director. With a long resume in global health and academic research, and his incredible work in Iraq at our TSP, we are thrilled about his addition to the team. Steve Stevens has been a highly involved and dedicated volunteer with NYC Medics both in the field and the office; he will now be Volunteer Coordinator. Monique Francois is Operations Coordinator and is the main point person and organizer extraordinaire for all things administrative in the New York City office.
Jake Dutton, previously the Volunteer Coordinator, will be taking on the role of Emergency Response Coordinator. His expertise and education in emergency response and management makes him uniquely qualified to help NYCMedics improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our response.
Look out for emails and calls from Matt, Monique, and Steve. Feel free to reach out to introduce yourself; our new team members cannot wait to meet you!
