Claudia P. Caparco, President/CEO, received her Bachelor’s in Nursing degree from New York University in 1981. After graduation, she moved to Rochester, NY and worked as a registered nurse in hospital settings until 1990, when she became employed by a local plaintiff law firm as a Legal Nurse Consultant (LNC).
In 1995, Ms. Caparco formed a medical-legal consulting business working with attorneys (both locally and nationally) that specialize in medical malpractice, personal injury and criminal law.
In 2000, she advanced her skills as a Forensic Nurse and formed Alpha CHECKPOINT as an extension of her forensic expertise and, since then, has been providing laboratory testing and medical-consulting services. Alpha CHECKPOINT was established as a minority, woman-owned small business with an unwavering attention to the company’s core values, mission and objectives.
In 2006, Ms. Caparco co-founded LNCExchange.com, a professional listserv for legal nurse consultants, attorneys, experts, and forensic & medical-legal consultants. Since its inception in February 2006, and with a history of over 2300 members, LNCExchange has evolved into a valuable networking, educational and business resource. Group and private exchanges on the listserv cover a wide range of topics, including those pertinent to medical-legal issues, case analysis and small business topics, among others.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, and with an established history of professional and healthcare/medical industry expertise, Ms. Caparco has guided Alpha CHECKPOINT to seamlessly partner directly with manufacturers to assist in the procurement of needed supplies of nitrile gloves, masks, sanitizers, rapid antigen and antibody test kits, and vaccines.
