Alumnus of the Year

physician and medical director of Harborview
Medical Center’s Emergency Department, was
honored as Seattle Pacific’s 2021 Alumnus

he led the effort to establish a new database

cooperative approach to emergency pandemic
management. The award was presented at
a virtual event for SPU donors in November.
