I just realized tonight that today is actually June 10, 2021 and it's been 45 years since my graduation from The Ohio State University College of Medicine. What a journey, from Columbus to Hershey, PA to Granville, OH, to Spring Valley Township/ Bellbrook, OH with practices at The Department of Family and Community Medicine at the M. S. Hershey Medical Center of Penn State University, The Granville Medical Center, Newark (2 different locations in Licking County, OH), Denison University Whistler Hall, OSU Department of Family Medicine, The Frederick A. White Center of Wright State University, The Indian Ripple Family Health Center, Family Health Connections, Inc., The Central State University Campus Health Center, Open Arms Health Clinic, and Neighborly Family Medicine.
I learned so much from, for and about patients and health and disease and pain and suffering and the amazing talents of the human body by about 225, 000 interactions with patients. I'm still learning and listening and thankful for the opportunity.
The Dr. Synonymous photo with this blog was taken on that day. The Class of 1976 of The Ohio State University College of Medicine has touched a lot of lives. What a journey!
