Biography

Dr. Chan was born in Hong Kong and emigrated to the U.S. when he was 6.  As a child growing up in the tenement projects of the lower East side of New York City, he experienced first hand the struggles of the poor.  As a result, Dr. Chan's life mission has been to dedicate his work and family life to service.

 
After completing his schooling at a public high school, Dr. Chan enrolled at Harvard University, where he completed a joint degree in Chemistry and Religious Studies.  He then went on to do two years of volunteer work as a teacher of high school drop-outs in Appalachian Kentucky and then as a non-profit lobbyist for hunger legislation with Bread for the World in Washington, D.C.  After these experiences, Dr. Chan completed a medical degree at Johns Hopkins Medical School and then went on to be jointly trained as an internist and pediatrician at the Harvard Medical School hospitals (Brigham and Women's and Boston Children's Hospitals).  After completing his residency, he worked in the underserved Navajo reservation in northwest Arizona for 4 years as a primary care physician before resuming his training at the University of Michigan, where he completed a Masters in Biostatistics and an adult cardiovascular medicine fellowship.  
 
Dr. Chan spends most of his time (~60% to 70%) conducting clinical research.  He has over 90 peer-reviewed publications, serves on multiple national committees for the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association, and is an internationally renowned for his work on cardiac arrest, quality and appropriateness of care, and disparities in care.  He has a particular interest in studying the care of traditionally vulnerable populations (e.g., minorities, uninsured patients).  He also spends time as a general cardiologist.  Dr. Chan has received numerous awards for his research.
 
Finally, Dr. Chan spends much of his free time outside the hospital with his family and working on health and development projects in Third World countries.  He has travelled to Central America over a dozen times, has been president of the Board of Directors of a Guatemalan non-governmental health and development organization (Behrhorst Partners for Development), and currently serves on the Board of Directors of Church World Service -- an organization focused on refugee relief and resettlement, food assistance programs, and sustainable health and development programs in resource-poor countries.
