He has also written extensively and is the author of multiple books on the subjects of medicine, business leadership, motivation, and success.

The EFCCI seeks to mould, guide, educate, and focus the lives of children in Jamaica who have been abandoned, abused, or neglected towards achieving their God-given potential, as well as help them to become useful and productive citizens. The foundation is supported by the goodwill and generosity of individuals and organisations that share similar goals.
