He is chair elect of the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (NANETS) and lectures frequently in the United States, Europe and Asia.About his experience at King David, he says “King David had a profound affect in shaping me. I would have to say Dr. Thomas had the most impact on me academically in that she taught us to think outside the box. However, KDHS’s strength was that it provided a well rounded education, did not just teach for the examinations and that the extracurricular activities helped too with providing a broad experience”.
