‘Top Docs’ show on flight service for in-need patients now online
A recording of a recent Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) ‘Top Docs Radio’ show that addressed Angel Flight Soars – a “non-profit organization that helps medically stable and ambulatory patients who demonstrate a financial need and/or anyone who cannot use or access commercial transportation” – is now available online.
The show featured Angel Flight Executive Director Jeanine Chambers and Angel Flight Board member and volunteer pilot Bert Light.
The discuss the organization’s mission – as well as its geographic reach, the criteria it uses, and how it interacts with physicians.
“Angel Flight has coordinated more than 39,000 mission flights in the last 34 years,” says Chambers. “In 2016 alone, we coordinated more than 3,200 missions. This translates into eight missions a day, seven days a week.”
Light adds that, “We have helped patients from 34 states who ranged in age from newborn to 97 years old and who had nearly 180 different medical conditions.”
MAG sponsors the ‘Top Docs’ program at 12 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Between downloads and live listeners, MAG's ‘Top Docs’ show has reached more than 8,500 listeners – which includes people in all 50 states and 84 countries.
MAG’s ‘Top Docs Radio’ show is supported with a grant from Health Care Research, a subsidiary of Alliant Health Solutions.
