How Dr. John Carlo—And the Dallas County Medical Society—Helped The Victims of Hurricane Harvey

Dr. John Carlo, who became the youngest president ever of the Dallas County Medical Society in January, was running on “caffeine and fumes” when he met with former D CEO Healthcare Editor Olivia Nguyen to discuss the DCMS response to Hurricane Harvey. In a story in the November issue of D CEO magazine, Carlo, 44, explained that it was his job to coordinate staffing for the city of Dallas’ “mega-shelter” for Harvey victims at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. His task included coordinating the schedules of thousands of DCMS member-physicians who served 4 to 8-hour shifts at the shelter, ensuring that storm victims had 24/7 medical services, from pediatrics to trauma.
