"My wife and I moved from California out to Massachusetts when I started my medical internship at the Beth Israel Hospital. Twenty years ago now, we moved to Needham, where our kids grew up and went to school. I worked for a decade as an ER doc doing graveyard shifts at our local community hospital, then Glover Memorial, now the Beth Israel Deaconess Needham Campus. Since then, I have been the main back-up coverage for the Infectious Diseases service there. I have long been a big believer in the importance of community hospitals as the backbone of personal medical care and have watched with concern the increasing financial pressures they face. I am pleased and proud that the money I raise as part of the BIDMC Treadstrong Boston Marathon team will go to support this great local institution. In 2019, my 60th year on the planet, I hope to see you at the finish line!"
