For more than 100 years, National Jewish Health has been on the forefront of research and medicine. Our team is known worldwide for treatment of patients with respiratory, cardiac, immune and related disorders, and for groundbreaking medical research.
Today, our mission remains the same: to heal, to discover, and to educate as a preeminent health care institution. We combine our research, clinical and educational efforts to provide personalized medicine that predicts, prevents and treats many diseases. When you join National Jewish Health, you're contributing to our outstanding history by working to extend our excellence into the future.
Since 1899, volunteers have been a key component of our institution, providing consistent and dedicated support and assistance to our staff, the patients we serve and their family members. No matter what their role, volunteers at National Jewish Health are an essential part of what makes us who we are.
To remain a leader in the treatment of respiratory, cardiac and immune diseases, our focus is to educate scientists, physicians, health care professionals and the community. In collaboration with several universities and colleges, we offer internships, clinical fellowships, pre-doctoral training and postdoctoral fellowships.
National Jewish Health proudly hosts foreign nationals from around the world to further their education, careers and exchange of ideas. Over the years, National Jewish Health has attracted distinguished researchers who seek to participate in cutting-edge investigations and improve their understanding and treatment of respiratory, cardiac, immune and related conditions.
Without the dedication of our employees, we would not be the preeminent respiratory hospital in the nation. At National Jewish Health we are a team working toward one mission: to heal, to discover and to educate as a preeminent health care institution.
I live the motto of National Jewish Health every day. Science Transforming Life® is what I do, and I am grateful that I get to experience all aspects of that process here. The National Jewish Health Biobank collects, stores and distributes vital human specimen samples that patients have graciously donated to the institution for research. It seems like a simple concept, but it involves quite a bit of time and a lot resources for the process to happen.
Together with a great team of people, we bridge benchtop research with clinical care. So whether you’re a patient, nurse, doctor, statistician or principal investigator of a research group, I will come and talk to you about your role in making the National Jewish Health Biobank run smoothly and effectively.
I’ve made a lot of great memories here at National Jewish Health, but some of my favorites are from times when we have moved our online presence forward in a significant way. Launching two sites in my first year to support the new brand while updating the overall site design was a fun and busy time.
I’m passionate about my career here because of the amazing work the organization does and the variety of ways my fantastic team supports that. I have said more than once that while we don’t save lives with the National Jewish Health website, we do get the word out to the world so that they can find the people who can. Working at a “dot org” has an intangible feeling versus a “dot com,” which was my background before starting here.
I enjoy being part of a team that researches occupational/environmental disease and treatment. My role is building software tools used to organize and analyze data we get from our studies. My passion comes from getting to see the tools I create being used by my colleagues to do research and to help treat patients.
Since I’ve joined National Jewish Health, I’ve also enjoyed volunteering with the Reading Buddies program at Morgridge Academy. Getting paired up with students at an early grade level and following them until they leave the Academy is awesome. I’m with my second student who is now in the 8th grade. My favorite memories are from partnering with him at an early age and seeing how far he’s come.
National Jewish Health gives me great pleasure because I get to see patients leave after my procedure with a big smile—knowing they don't have to fight for each breath they take. We recently had a patient from New Mexico referred to me with a lung mass. According to his pulmonologist, the mass needed to be removed with high-risk surgery.
After careful assessment, we offered him a bronchoscopic biopsy. The procedure was done the next day in an outpatient setting, and a diagnosis of a benign disease was made. The satisfaction on the face of this patient and his family was priceless. Our cutting-edge technologies and specialized skills allow us to avoid high-risk surgeries and provide patients with peace of mind that they are not sitting on cancer.
Over the years, I’ve made many memories at National Jewish Health. The completion of the Molly Blank Conference Center was an adventure for our growing National Jewish Health family. During that time, a post-digging company came out to dig a hole for the new flag pole. After about five minutes of drilling, a large water spout (about 10 feet high) started shooting water. It was later learned the drilling company had struck the main water line. After some heavy flooding and lots of water, things were brought back to normal.
At National Jewish Health, my passion is HELPING. Being in the position to have a positive effect on the many visitors here is rewarding, and leads to a stronger effort toward being the ambassador we all want.
