Harvard Global Healthcare Leader, Karen Nussbaumer, paves the way to provide everyone with access to ultrasound education.
Karen is the founder of Gulf Coast Institute of Vascular Ultrasound (1999), The CURE Center for Ultrasound Research and Education (2007), and ADOM, Academy of Diagnostic and Osteopathic Medicine (2022). She has lectured medical students and physicians at Oxford University, Harvard University and most recently, the University of California San Diego.
Karen is an award winning medical researcher and medical author. Two of her research methods, The Nussbaumer Aneurysm Dilation Ratio (NADR) and the Fat Embolism Clinical Scoring Chart, have won awards with leading ultrasound societies. She was the only non physician to have original research published in the Clinical Research at Harvard two years in a row. Karen is currently engineering a smart device that kills tumors without permanently harming organs.
Karen's new venture, Currents Medical, Inc. (2022) aims to provide patients with same day diagnostics and treatment. "The ability to have same day diagnostics and treatment is what needs to happen right now. It starts with education."
Karen is also an award winning songwriter, screenplay writer and mom.
