CEO, President and CoFounder of ARDS Foundation
Eileen Rubin, JD, is CEO, President of ARDS Foundation. Eileen is also an Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) survivor, spending nine weeks in the hospital, eight of those weeks mechanically ventilated, and four weeks in a medically induced coma. She co-founded ARDS Foundation, a nonprofit organization incorporated in December 2000. The foundation is dedicated to increasing awareness, providing education, and offering support to those in the ARDS Community, as well as facilitating medical professionals engaged in critical care research. After spending many years engaging with patients and families regarding the time spent in ICUs, as well as drawing on her own experiences, Eileen gained knowledge, passion, understanding, and an instinct about the issues that surround ICU patients and families in the ICU. Realizing that patients and families who are treated with dignity and respect during the critical care hospitalization work more cooperatively with medical staff and are more often included as part of the team is of critical importance. Her desire is also to ensure that the patient/family perspective is represented and of the highest priority.
