An Unexpected Journey - My Life in Medicine - April 15, 2014
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.
