Noted cardiologist Dr. Brian Eades of Dallas, Texas has joined Pacific Islands Medical Aid’s Heart Team to help with patients from the Line Islands, Kiribati.

Dr. Eades’ appointment was made by PIMA Heart Team leader Dr. Alistair Fyfe of Cardiology Associates of Dallas. “We are extremely pleased and fortunate to have a cardiologist of Dr. Eades caliber join our team,” Dr. Fyfe said.

Plans now underway call for Dr. Eades to join Dr. Fyfe, two cardiac surgical nurses from Baylor Heart Hospital in Plano, Texas, and ultra-sound technician Beaux Seabury on an expedition to Christmas Island, Kiribati, in mid-February to assess heart disease among adolescents, where the incidence of early untreated rheumatic fever is of great concern, Dr. Fyfe said.
