Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Following my return from Liberia, I returned to Johns Hopkins where I obtained my MPH in Tropical Medicine (conferred upon graduation from medical school in 1983), followed by residency training in Pediatrics (Yale) and Internal Medicine (Dartmouth). I was a clinical fellow at UCSF in Rheumatology, and moved to the Berkshires in 1992, and have directed clinical programs in rheumatology at Berkshire Medical Center since then. I have two sons, Nicholas (15) and Benjamin (12), live in Williamstown on a farm, and am married to Katie Wolfgang, a lovely veterinarian (and former Burkina Fasso traveller).
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Peace Corps certainly taught patience, appreciation of a cultural perspective on illness and health, and served a vital role in forging my clinical identity as a care giver to a wide variety of people from all over the globe.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any PMS volunteers (Liberia 76-78), as well as foresters, educators and administrators from that era. Anyone residing in the Berkshires?
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Use your intuition and fortitude to realize your dreams...
