Congratulations to Huntington Hospital's medical director of trauma
services, Amal Obaid-Schmid, MD, for being named a Healthcare Hero in
the most recent issue of Business Life Magazine!
Dr. Obaid-Schmid is featured for her above and beyond work to train people
throughout our community on how to “Stop the Bleed.” These
hands-on trainings teach invaluable information on how to use tourniquets
and control bleeding in traumatic injuries – helping save lives
before emergency medical personnel are able to arrive.
“I always wanted to be a doctor…since I was a little girl,”
said Dr. Obaid-Schmid. “When I was completing my residency training,
I immediately chose to focus on trauma surgery. Every day, I have the
opportunity to save a life. I just know this is where I belong in the
healthcare field, and I’m so proud to lead the efforts for the largest
trauma center in the San Gabriel Valley.”
