S8_E2: Meet Dr. Karen Tran-Harding - Creator, Host & Producer of MEDICAL HEROES

June 22, 2021

Karen Tran-Harding, M.D.  is a diagnostic radiologist at the University of California, Irvine Medical Center, a specialty in which physicians use imaging to diagnose, manage and provide therapeutic options for patients; radiologists act as expert consultants to referring physicians by interpreting imaging, generating accurate reports and recommending further imaging, tests or treatment. Raised in Southern California, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in biology from UCLA and attended medical school at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. After an OB/GYN residency, she switched her focus to radiology. She returned to California from Kentucky in 2019, was awarded an abdominal imaging fellowship by UCI Medical Center and then took her current full-time position there. Her husband, whom she met in medical school, is a frontline physician treating COVID-19 patients. She wanted to share stories of their accomplishments, both professional and personal, to create hope and inspiration in the dark months of the novel corona virus pandemic. Thus was the inspiration for Tran-Harding’s web series MEDICAL HEROES, a 30-minute show which streams daily, 7 days a week, at 9:00 a.m. PT/noon ET on the DB&A Television network. Each episode usually spotlights two people, in insightful interviews conducted by Tran-Harding with questions enhanced by her own medical knowledge and experience. She is also the producer of the show. Credit: Barrettco / DB&A Television Network
