Mr. HELLER: Mr. President, today, I wish to recognize Dr. Ron Aryel, pediatrician, biosurveillance expert, and founder of Reno Center for Child and Adolescent Health. The advanced health care this facility provides to our citizens is invaluable to Northern Nevada, bringing an improved quality of life to children who are disabled or chronically ill, and in turn, the lives of their parents as well.  

Dr. Aryel founded Reno Center for Child and Adolescent Health in January of 2010. Prior to that, he served as a pediatrician and disaster response officer for the Public Health Service, treating patients in a variety of settings including private offices, emergency rooms, psychiatric treatment centers, homes, field hospitals, and at the rear of utility vehicles in national emergency situations. During the 1999 North Atlantic Treaty Organization Summit, he served on a team that included a disaster response unit and the U.S. Marine Corps Chemical Biological Incidence Response Force unit, protecting the United States President from radiological chemical and biological threats. In addition, he has volunteered as a clinical supervisor at the University of Nevada, Reno Student Outreach Clinic and served on the Board of Directors for Project Restart in Reno.

Dr. Aryel has received a number of accolades, including the 2008 Good Neighbor Award from Kansas City, Missouri. Reno Center for Child and Adolescent Health was also recognized with a Silver Syringe Award for its significantly high vaccination rates. Dr. Aryel’s unwavering dedication to bringing first-class medical care to those around him goes without question. I am grateful to have him working to help those in need in the Silver State, and I extend my deepest gratitude for all he has done to help Nevada’s youth.

Reno Center for Child and Adolescent Health offers preventive and medical care to infants, children, adolescents, and young adults who require attention for serious or life-threatening illnesses and disabilities, as well as those requiring complex health care management. The facility is truly one of a kind in that it welcomes all children, including those with extremely difficult medical cases, and has the highest quantity of chronically and seriously ill children and adolescents in Northern Nevada. Those leading the way at the Center, including Dr. Aryel, are truly role models, demonstrating a genuine concern in improving the health and well-being of Nevada’s future generations. Our state is fortunate to have a facility like this available to those in need.

I am both humbled and honored to acknowledge Dr. Aryel for his outstanding work, especially for what he has done for families throughout Northern Nevada, and I wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors. Today, I ask my colleagues and all Nevadans to join me in recognizing an upstanding Nevadan, Dr. Ron Aryel.
