Randy Roberson

About Me: 

HELP Founding President Randy Roberson has been a world leader in disaster response and management for 12 years as the protégé of the late Dr. Larry Ward, who was named "White House Ambassador to the Hungry World" by former U.S. President Ronald Reagan. In this role, Randy has provided a range of services, first-hand and on the ground, to communities in earthquake ravaged neighborhoods of Colombia, El Salvador and Turkey; areas ravaged by floods, poverty and AIDS in Africa; refugee camps during the Kosovo war; famine-stricken communities in India and Bangladesh; and tsunami-devastated shores of Thailand and India, among others. In response to the needs for immediate, emergency medical care and water purification that he has witnessed worldwide, Randy created the Doc-in-a-Box™, a 20-foot storage container converted into a fully deployment-ready, telemedicine-equipped medical clinic, and the Bring ‘Em Back Pack, a 25-pound, portable, solar-powered, telemedicine-equipped medical backpack. These telemedicine capabilities include global telecommunications that link patients directly to doctors, facilitating person-to-person medical care. He has served as a consultant to the South African Parliament to develop disaster preparedness planning, and was recently named as a Consultant for Disaster Management to the Philippine National Red Cross. Specialties:International emergency management & preparedness consulting, needs assessment specialist, mobile medical clinic implementation and management, telemedicine systems specialist, emergency situational awareness specialist, communications specialist, water purification specialist, ground logistics/supply chain specialist, international relations.
