Jamaican EXPATRIATES helping their countrymen at home is the ultimate goal of Dr. Dixon. He is currently Director of Emergency Ultrasound at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical Center , Newark New Jersey . where he will be Involved in their Global Health Initiatives. Since 2008, Dixon has been bringing together and leading various professionals from New York and New Jersey to voluntarily travel to Jamaica to conduct an annual Emergency Ultrasound Symposium for doctors from various public hospitals across the island, teaching the many uses of the ultrasound machine. This initiative blossomed into a medical mission involving over thirty volunteers, and conducting additional projects such as, Annual Paediatric Cancer Conferences, Health Fairs, Donation of Medical Equipment and Supplies, Facilities Renovation and much more.
Born in Christiana, Manchester, Dixon migrated to the US at age 10. He never forgot the words of his late mother, nurse Hazel B. Dixon, who said, “Instead of complaining about the problem, do something”. Always desiring to help his country of birth, he got involved. “I am hoping to encourage others to get involved and to give, especially to the public hospitals that have a high volume of patients and are under-resourced,” Dixon said.
