Emily Lenzen, MS, RDMS (Abd, Ob/Gyn, Pediatrics), RVT, RMSKS

Program Manager, RAD-AID Ultrasound

Emily began her journey with RAD-AID in 2017 as she embarked on a six-week long trip to Lanug Prabang, Laos at the Friends Hospital for Children. This trip changed her life as she developed valuable relationships that have shaped her career and the manner in which she gives back to my profession. She is passionate about pediatrics and spent nearly 10 years scanning kiddos in the Denver metro area. She loves the connection with the patients as well as with families and care givers. Each story is unique and pediatric ultrasound is utilized as a diagnosis tool, elevating the care of a patient. Because of this, Emily feels fortunate to work with RAD-AID International coordinating volunteers for our pediatric projects around the globe. She has extensive global health experience in Malawi, New Zealand, Qatar, and Nepal. Currently, Emily Lenzen works with Dr. Michael Reiter and the ultrasound committee to develop, articulate and support educational goals for individual country project needs.
