He is a sought-after lecturer on the subject of health care for large-scale athletic events, and has extensive experience working with local, state and federal agencies as it relates to mass casualty concerns for major marathons.
Chris has an excellent record of accomplishment when providing road race medicine as a result of his many years as the Medical Coordinator of the Boston Marathon. From 1977 to 1995, he volunteered as the coordinator of athletic training services with the Boston Athletic Association. Since 1996, he has taken on a leadership role organizing a medical committee of over 50 medical professionals and another 1600 on-site medical volunteers.
He has been the primary liaison to the various cities and towns supporting the race. His partnerships and relationship building skills have created strong ties with the Department of Public Health, the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency and ten participating hospitals. His ability to bring people together and forge relationships has truly allowed many competing agencies to act as one during this historic marathon.
In addition to his organizational skills, Chris has established vital partnerships with a number of key corporate supporters by partnering with Philips HealthCare, Covdien, Abbot Labs and Nova BioMedical. His efforts have allowed the Boston Marathon to enjoy the largest level of medical sponsorship and “gift in kind” support in the country.
