"David and I worked together as colleagues [in] the American Public Health Association Injury Control & Emergency Health Services section. He jump-started a moribund committee focused on disaster and emergency services, recruited members to it, organized calls and represented the committee, the section, and the entire organization appropriately and professionally. He was a pleasure to work with and I welcome opportunities to do so again."
