HealthChoicesFirst.com Announces Appointment of Dr. David Maberley to Medical Board
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 3, 2014 (VANCOUVER) Dr. David Maberley has joined the Medical Board of HealthChoicesFirst.com, a growing video-based, Canada-wide directory of healthcare providers. HCF features Key Opinion Leaders sharing health and wellness solutions and patient education tools related to physician-directed care, prescription and non-prescription medications, surgical options and more.
Dr. David Maberley is the Site Head for Ophthalmology at Vancouver Acute Hospital and Regional Head of Ophthalmology for Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. He is also professor and head of the University of British Columbia’s Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences.
“As a leader in many areas of ophthalmology, it’s the perfect time for Dr. Maberley to join us,” says Jackson Sayers, CEO, HealthChoicesFirst.com. “In addition to growing our vision health video content, we are launching a new condition-based platform in September 2014. We will invite local allied and complementary professionals to set up and lead health conversations providing patients with multiple up-to-date treatment options.”
Dr. Maberley is actively involved in clinical medicine, with a great deal of expertise in the medical and surgical management of diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, structural macular diseases, retinal detachment, and high myopia.
He is the Medical Director of the UBC/VCHA Inner-City Eye Program and is heading the ophthalmology component of the British Columbia First Nations On-Reserve Diabetes Telemedicine project. His research interests include the epidemiology of ocular disease, clinical trials methodology, and care delivery in marginalized populations.
“Complementary health care is essential for optimal disease management,” says Sayers. “As patients visit the site looking for diabetes management options, for example, a vision care video around diabetic retinopathy could be extremely relevant, thus adding another layer to trustworthy consumer information.”
