When I left my large family in Brooklyn for college in Buffalo, New York, I had no plans for a life in science at all, let alone a life as doctor. When that all changed and I actually did go to medical school, I had no plans for a career devoted to care of cancer patients.  My talk will focus on how mentorship, opportunity, and the willingness to take a chance changed the direction of my life; how global collaboration has advanced the field of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; and, how being a doctor – and a patient – has enriched my life in ways I could never have imagined.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Academy of Medicine Series. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing education for physicians.

The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
