Nomination for Paul G. Harch, M.D. for the 2010 Citizen's Medal

by William A. Duncan

Dr. Paul Harch should receive the 2010 Citizens Medal because his volunteer actions have directly reduced diabetic foot amputations for thousands of Americans since 2002. President Obama brought these amputations to the nation's attention at the August 2009 New Hampshire Health Town Hall meeting. Further, another treatment protocol Dr. Harch pioneered has enabled 80% of all treated brain-injured war veterans to return to duty, work or school. This saved the government nearly $2 million for each active duty veteran rescued.

Dr. Harch has been making videos of his patients for more than 17 years as a way to track their progress. His staff uses a hand held VHS camera -- outdated by today's standards -- to record his interaction with patients after each HBOT session.
