Dr. Richard Chinnock To Speak At THERE IS HOPE EVENT

Posted by on October 10, 2018

Dr. Richard Chinnock will be the featured testimonial speaker at the upcoming There Is Hope Luncheon on November 1.  The event will take place at the Ontario DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton.

“Dr. Chinnock was the first physician Sandy and I spoke with about our vision of Steven’s Hope”, said co-founder Tony Cappelli.  “Since that first meeting, he has been a believer and advocate for the organization. He’s been a consistent blessing.”

Richard was born in Los Angeles, and moved to Redlands, CA at the age of 10 when the School of Medicine, where his father was on faculty, moved to Loma Linda. 

Dr. Chinnock was the recipient of a US Navy scholarship for medical school, and graduated from Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1982. He did his internship in pediatrics at LLUMC and then after a year as a battalion surgeon with the US Marines at Camp Pendleton, he finished his residency, including a chief residency, in pediatrics at the US Naval Hospital in San Diego.  After completing his active duty commitment, he remained in the US Naval Reserve, serving at US Naval Hospital, San Diego, as Officer-in-Charge of the medical detachment for 4th Tanks Battalion, and at various duty stations around the United States. 

 Dr. Chinnock was recruited back to Loma Linda in 1989 to be a part of the heart transplant team.  He became the director of the heart transplant team in 1992 and is an internationally recognized expert in pediatric heart transplantation, with nearly 90 manuscripts, 12 book chapters and 145 abstracts published in his field.  He is a member of the prestigious American Pediatric Society.
