Matagiese H. Tunoa Jr., DCHMS, MBBS

Born and raised in Pago Pago, American Samoa, Matt was a graduate of the Pacific Basin Medical Officers Training Program - John A. Burns School of Medicine (Diploma Community Health, Medicine and Surgery) and the Fiji School of Medicine - formerly University of the South Pacific (MBBS). For the first 4 years of his career at LBJ, he served as a general practitioner, and in  2003, he began working as a general pediatrics staff physician. He served a term as the secretary/treasurer of the medical staff and enjoyed participating in many of the various medical executive committees. He always welcomed the chance to further his medical education specializing in pediatrics as opportunities arose. Matt is sorely missed by his patients and colleagues.
