Thanai Pongdee, MD, FAAAAIMeet the New AAAAI Website and Social Media Medical Editors

After almost nine years as the AAAAI Website and Social Media Medical Editor, Thanai Pongdee, MD, FAAAAI, will be ending his term on December 31, 2017. The AAAAI is extremely grateful for his leadership and expertise in moving our technology and social media strategies forward during his years of service.

Starting January 1, Andrew D. Moore, MD, FAAAAI, will take over as the Website Medical Editor and David R. Stukus, MD, FAAAAI, will take over as the Social Media Medical Editor. The position has been divided into two roles because of the growing need for technology and social media. Each of them bring a wide range of experience that will help the AAAAI continue to grow in both areas.

Dr. Moore
Moore obtained his medical degree from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He completed his residency in internal medicine followed by a fellowship in clinical immunology and allergy at the Montreal General Hospital. He has worked as an allergist in private practice in Montreal and as a Clinical Teaching Professor and researcher for the University of Sherbrooke. He currently works as an allergist/immunologist for Ear, Nose, and Throat and Allergy/Asthma Care, a member of Johns Hopkins Regional Physicians in the Washington, DC-Baltimore corridor.

In addition to his clinical responsibilities, he has had the opportunity to work as a physician editor for several prominent medical websites and is certified in Full Stack Web Development. He redeveloped and maintains the website for the Association of Allergists and Immunologists of Québec. Moore speaks fluent French and in his free-time enjoys travelling, swimming and skiing.

Dr. Stukus
Stukus received his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Pittsburgh. He completed his pediatric residency and chief residency at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, followed by his fellowship in allergy/immunology at the Cleveland Clinic. He practices at Nationwide Children’s Hospital where he serves as Director of the Complex Asthma Clinic, Director of Quality Improvement for the Division of Allergy and Immunology, and Co-Chair for the annual pediatric asthma conference.

Stukus is active on social media through his Twitter account @AllergyKidsDoc, where he engages with the general public and colleagues as he disseminates evidence-based information through his popular “Myth Busting.” He has created curriculum at his institution to train medical students and residents on social media best practices and often trains physicians on the use of social media at conferences. Within our specialty, Stukus has distinguished himself as a leading example of how social media can be a useful tool for education, awareness, engagement and advocacy.
