More on Tyler Sexton, our Keynote...
On Thursday morning, we welcome Dr. Tyler Sexton as our Keynote speaker.
                Dr. Sexton was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition in which the prognosis usually involves a wheelchair, mental retardation, blindness and seizures. Through his faith in Jesus Christ, Tyler has never let any medical diagnosis, statistic or the negative attitudes of others stop him from dreaming and achieving his goals. Tyler attended medical school and achieved a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. He strives to be a doctor who gives hope to patients, instead of worst case scenarios.
                Since 2003, Dr. Sexton has been an international motivational speaker. Dr. Sexton has spoken hundreds of times raising awareness about overcoming adversity for the disabled. He has written a book entitled God Bless These Little Legs and been featured in numerous books, articles, and radio/television broadcast around the country. Some of these programs include 700 Club, The God Squad, Hour of Power, The Helpline and Focus on the Family. His goal is to impact people by instilling in them an attitude of achievement–regardless of the disability or situation. He strives to be a doctor who gives hope to patients, instead of worst case scenarios. His interest in Hyperbarics was initially due to his diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. Dr. Sexton was told that he would never walk, talk or even see. Defying these odds, and undergoing 16 surgeries he pursued his passion of SCUBA diving and has climbed the ranks of recreational SCUBA diving and turn his passion into his career as a Hyperbaric Physician. Dr. Sexton has published many papers focused on Hyperbaric Medicine and its medicinal effects in many clinical applications. Dr. Sexton mentors children with disabilities and works with many special interest groups educating them in the field of Hyperbaric Medicine. He uses this knowledge as a physician by treating countless individuals suffering from Decompression Illness and other hyperbaric clinical applications in the US and abroad for anyone in need of it.
                Dr Sexton is the owner of Caribbean Hyperbaric Medicine, an international training and hyperbaric consulting company dedicated to bringing hyperbaric medicine and education to corners of the world where access is limited. He is a American College of Hyperbaric Medicine approved Training provider and also had courses approved by the National Board of Diving and Hyperbaric Technologies.
                He is also a Clinical Professor of Hyperbaric Medicine and teaches courses for numerous medical schools in the Caribbean and consults with many individuals/companies looking for increased training for their personnel.  He focuses on adult and pediatric wound care and serves as a Pediatric Hospitalist for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital; The University of South Alabama Women’s and Children’s Hospital and serves as Chief Pediatric Hospitalist and Wound care and Hyperbaric medicine physician for Singing River Hospital System.
