He was a short-term training program research fellow at UCLA and received a research grant for undergraduate research while at Stanford.
Kyle has used his knowledge and abilities to help various groups of people. He traveled with Witness for Peace, a medical relief delegation, to Honduras after Hurricane Mitch. There, he provided medical care to the people of the impoverished communities and taught preventative health care measures.
He has also volunteered his time with a number of children's groups, at different times acting as a companion for a chronically-ill 3-year-old girl, supervising activities at a camp for deaf children and teaching cognitive skills to a child with autism via behavior-modification teaching techniques.
Other activities include participating in the medical care of 3,500 bicyclists and crew in a week-long ride raising money for organizations serving people with HIV/AIDS. He facilitated small groups along with faculty members while at UCLA and assisted in teaching beginning-level Spanish to medical students. He has also coordinated a shadowing program for first- and second-year neurology students and co-coordinated a group that gave medical students exposure to the world of pediatrics.
