“Research pushes me to overcome challenges and controversies while making a difference and providing hope in the lives of those around me, through alternate therapies available only through clinical research.”

“I have been with OHHRF since 2001. It has been very rewarding yet challenging! I have worked in the research arena since 1989, but working in cardiovascular research has been the most interesting, and it seems like I learn something new every day! I am looking forward to the continued growth of OHHRF!”

“I enjoy working in research for many reasons. I love the variety of learning opportunities, including working with new technology with our physicians and staff at OHH. I love the ability to provide this technology/treatment to patients who have few other options and see their improved quality of life after treatment.”

Tawnaya Wright, CCRC

“Working in research has offered the opportunity to help provide patients with hope where there otherwise may be despair, and to be a part of not only prolonging life, but improving the quality of life as well... and I’m a pushover for a happy ending.”

Siraj Qazi, MPH

"I love doing what we do. Introducing new treatments and helping people, along with OHHRF team, is not only exciting but something to be proud of as well.  Clinical research gives hope to patients that new drugs or devices will eventually be beneficial for them or their generations.  We take care of hearts with our heart and soul and that’s what makes us different and one of the top research sites in Oklahoma and in the USA for quality cardiovascular research."

India Williams, RN
Clinical Research Coordinator

Working in research is exciting in that we are helping people in new ways every day!  The new devices, drugs and treatments that we use give us the opportunity to change the world of healthcare.  It is rewarding to be a part of something that is so progressive and beneficial to our patients.

 

Debbi Smith, CCRC
Clinical Research Coordinator

I enjoy working with our patients at the Oklahoma Heart Hospital.  Clinical Research gives me the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life and provides a positive impact for the family and community.  Having worked in research for over a decade, I find it challenging, yet very rewarding.  It is exciting to know that the work I’m doing today will contribute to medical treatments that will benefit patients of future generations.

Angela Anania

In the time I have been with OHHRF I have learned new things every day.  Knowing that I work for a company which is on the cutting edge of helping people with cardiovascular disease and prolonging their life is very rewarding.  I feel like I am contributing to the betterment of the healthcare industry.

Tiffany Clark, CCRC
Clinical Research Coordinator

"When it comes to our health, all of us want safe, effective and affordable treatment options. Conducting clinical trials investigating innovative devices and drug therapies is where I choose to be because everyday we push healthcare further down new paths, improving patient’s quality of life and constantly learn new things."

Krissy Colbath
Development Coordinator

“The research done at OHHRF has a real impact on the lives of those suffering with cardiovascular disease. It gives a grandfather time to teach his grandson how to fish. It gives a wife more time with her husband. It gives children more time with their parents. I am grateful to be part of an organization that is always searching for a way to give such a precious gift as time.”

Michele Mako

"I am so lucky and appreciative to be able to help patients who need to see a cardiologist, nephrologist, pulmonologist, or gastroenterologist. Seeing the gratefulness on our patient's faces is the best part of my day. The doctors, nurses, medical assistants and volunteers make The Medical Clinic for the Uninsured one of a kind."
