As part of the Delta team, Dr. Ting is building on this work to help Delta navigate the pandemic and emerge stronger and better prepared for the future.

Working collaboratively with groups across the airline, Dr. Ting leads Delta in reimagining our approach to health and well-being, utilizing new technologies, artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and innovative partnerships.

In addition to his role at Delta, Dr. Ting retains his title as Professor Emeritus at Mayo Clinic.
