White Coat Ceremony: Embarking on a Journey to Places You Cannot Yet Imagine

H

eld August 1 on Talbot Green, the traditional White Coat Ceremony marked an important first step in the professional lives of 189 members of BUSM’s Class of 2020.

“You are embarking on a journey that will take you to places you cannot yet imagine. You are on the cusp of entering a world that is glorious and exhilarating, yet also frightening and steeped with the responsibility of a lifetime of commitment,” said keynote speaker Sondra S. Crosby, MD, associate professor of medicine, health law, and policy & management at the Schools of Medicine and Public Health, respectively.

Boston University School of Medicine

Crosby noted that practicing medicine has given her the privilege of forming deeply personal bonds with people all over the world— which has greatly enriched her life—and that her white coat is a symbol of the trust she has earned: “You will earn that trust and respect with experience and time.” Drawn from a pool of more than 11,000 candidates through six entry pathways and 84 undergraduate institutions, the Class of 2020 includes 57 percent women, 18 percent from groups underrepresented in medicine, and almost 17 percent with a graduate degree at the master’s level or above, some with more than one. Most members of this highly accomplished class have participated in research; many have published scientific papers. Some have been volunteers with AmeriCorps, Teach for America, and the Peace Corps, while others have worked in high tech, taught elementary school, or started a business. The class is diverse in many ways— members come from 26 different states

and were born in 20 countries. One hundred seventy-four (90 percent) speak more than one language and as a group, speak a total of 27 different languages. “In cultural, social, economic, racial, ethnic, educational, and linguistic terms—and in your life experiences— you define the pluralism that we so value in our society,” noted Associate Dean for Admissions Dr. Robert Witzburg (MED’77) in formally presenting the class. In welcoming the class to the School of Medicine, Dean Karen Antman, MD, explained, “Medicine is a renaissance profession that requires all of your brain, all of your heart, and all of your soul. You cannot learn it from a book and it’s not all science. “The white coat ceremony marks a major life transition. It is the beginning of your formal medical education. When you put on the white coat for the first time today, the message is that you are already part of the profession. Your patients will not differentiate between you and their doctors as you will both be in white coats and, thus, you must behave as a physician.”

As Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Douglas Hughes, MD, read their names, class members climbed the stage, where they were coated by faculty members: Sonia Ananthakrishan, MD, assistant professor of medicine; Gregory A. Grillone, MD, vice chair of otolaryngology; David C. Henderson, MD, chair of psychiatry; James Holsapple, MD, chair of neurosurgery; David B. McAneny, MD, chair ad interim of surgery; Chaitan K. Narsule, MD, assistant professor of surgery; Jorge A. Soto, MD, chair of radiology; Rachel W. Thompson, MD, assistant professor of pediatrics; and Megan E. Young, MD, assistant dean for student affairs. Led by Associate Dean for Alumni Affairs Jean Ramsey (MED’90, MPH‘08), the class recited the Hippocratic Oath for the first time. “While these white coats are full of symbolism and standardize you as our medical students, we selected you not to homogenize you, but to develop your differences,” said Rafael Ortega, MD, associate dean for diversity and multicultural affairs. “The differences

you bring in gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, philosophy, and life experiences are our strength. “Beneath that white coat carry your uniqueness proudly, and with great selfawareness of the contributions each one of you can make in the unquestionably open environment we have created for your education and professional development. It has been said that luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Let these white coats symbolize the opportunity you have to become great physicians.“ See more images on Facebook at http://bit.ly/2aDY901.

Remembering Dick Egdahl, MD, PhD: Mentor and Friend By N. Stephen Ober, MD, MBA (CAS’82, MED’86), Director, MD/ MBA Dual Degree Program, Boston University School of Medicine

I

n July 1987, I was a surgical resident at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) assisting on a cardiac trauma case in the operating room. I had a chronic childhood bone disease that made my left leg susceptible to fracture, and as I turned to grab a clamp, my left femur broke. The pain radiated through my body. I completed the three-hour case and presented at the UCSD EmerDick Egdahl gency Department, and was then transferred to another hospital in San Diego to a specialist who was an expert in this type of disorder. While he patched me up, he told me, “You can no longer pursue a career in surgery.” I was devastated. As I networked and thought about career options, I made my way back to my alma mater, Boston University, where I spoke with many former professors and administrators. Each one said, “Speak with Dick Egdahl.” So I did. During our first encounter he shook my hand and said simply, “I am Dick.” That was the beginning of our fast friendship, which lasted for more than 30 years. After a brief interview, Dick said, “You have to be my assistant at the Health Policy Institute (HPI),” an innovation and think tank institution he’d started several years earlier on Bay State Road. I was 28 at the time; what could I say but “yes”? HPI was involved in many areas, including health policy, administration, research, and entrepreneurship. I was amazed. My career is now based on this foundation. During my first year at HPI, I assisted Dick in launching his first company, Health Payment Review (HPR), the first business in the health care industry to utilize a form of “rules-based intelligence” to administer claims/provider bills through automation. At HPR, Dick taught me how to develop clinical algorithms to evaluate claims data and all I needed to know about marketing clinical products: “Just be credible and above all, be clinical.” This is exactly what I did, and I helped sell over $250,000 in software products that first year. Dick had me walking on air—I could not believe that a mentor of his stature was interested in my career and me. After a year at HPR I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in business, and Dick helped me get accepted to Harvard Business School (HBS). I visited him often. During my first semester there, I bought him an HBS coffee mug, which sat on his desk holding his 4

Boston University School of Medicine

pens and pencils; every time I visited he would point to it and smile. In 2004 we reconnected and worked together for another seven years. It was the best time of my life—I was with my mentor and in the place I wanted to be. Dick Egdahl with students. When Dick passed away I was devastated. My first thoughts were, “What do I do now? I no longer have my mentor and friend.” Dick was a very private man who never sought the limelight. I could list his accomplishments but he would not want that, even though with all my heart, I wish I could share all his contributions to BU and the health care industry with you. Dick touched us all and gave us many great gifts, perhaps his greatest being his dedication and devotion to students, medical residents, and young physicians. He spent tireless hours mentoring us. There is a plaque outside his former office at 53 Bay State Road that reads:

RICHARD H. EGDAHL, MD, PHD

Remembering Dick Egdahl By Jonathan Gertler, MD (Questrom’99), Co-founder, Managing Partner and CEO, Back Bay Life Science Advisors

I

n 1998 I was an associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School. I was in the middle of a degree in health policy and management and on my way to what I hoped was a trajectory to department chair and then, who knows what academic life beyond that. In the course of earning this degree, which many of my surgery colleagues thought was an absurd pursuit (for all a surgical leader needed was to be good in the operating room in those days), I was told I should meet Dick Egdahl. At that time, Dick was known to me only as a surgical chair and expert endocrine surgeon—I had a book of surgical technique he’d edited that was a cherished (and often used) part of my surgical library. I had no idea where Dick’s interests and life had taken him. When

I told them of my impending meeting with him, some of my colleagues warned me against his entrepreneurial spirit as though somehow applying medical capability and insights to business was enough to render someone persona non grata in the stratified world of academic surgery. Dick was a delight. He was a man of remarkable perception, self-awareness, humility, kindness, and dedication to an ever-expanding horizon for himself and those around him. We struck a fast friendship and I was proud to have been his mentee. In those first days of my business career, we reviewed early-stage professional plans together and chuckled over revenue projections that essentially were Boston today, the United States tomorrow, and the world the day

after. But he was never disrespectful; he always counseled honestly and tried to be helpful. He embodied the ethic that you give without planning on what you will receive and that you should approach everything with an open mind. And that creativity, as he exhibited from the operating room to the business suite, was probably the most important predictor of success. As my own career grew, we spoke frequently and I always enjoyed our visits and discussions around the current state of the many medical and life science-related activities in which we were involved. Dick was an absolutely wonderful man, an incredibly decent human being who was inspired and in turn inspiring to all of us whose lives and careers he touched. We will miss him greatly. n

Physician, Innovator, Health Care Leader, Entrepreneur Founder, Boston University Health Policy Institute Elected to the Institute of Medicine, National Academy of Sciences, 1980 From 1975 until his retirement in 2010, Dr. Richard Egdahl occupied this office at 53 Bay State Road. Throughout a career spanning 46 years at Boston University, he held faculty appointments in the Schools of Medicine, Business, and Public Health. Dr. Egdahl was recruited to Boston University in 1964 to be Professor and Chairman of the Department of Surgery in the School of Medicine. From 1973 to 1996, he was director of Boston University Medical Center and also served as Academic Vice President for Health Affairs. In 1975, he founded the Health Policy Institute and served as its first director. In 1996, the University honored him by establishing the Health Care Entrepreneurship Program under his direction and appointing him as the first Alexander Graham Bell Professor of Health Care Entrepreneurship.

Rest in peace my mentor, partner, friend, and all-around great human being. And most of all, thank you for making me the man I am today. n

Inaugural PA Program Class Graduates The inaugural class of the Physician Assistant (PA) program graduated August 26, 2016. Twenty-three students—selected from 1,000 program applicants—were conferred the Master of Science degree by Associate Provost for the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences Linda Hyman, PhD. Their journey began with a yearlong, intensive didactic phase that included a full dissection lab in anatomy; physiology and molecular sciences; introduction to research; the second-year medical school course that teaches pathophysiology and pharmacology by body system called DRx; preventive medicine; and three clinical skills courses. Students participated in DRx small-group clinical reasoning sessions, took the same

examinations, and were graded using the same standards as second-year medical students. The clinical phase of the program included 14 one-month clinical rotations and a two-month thesis project. Founding Director Mary Warner, MMSc, PA-C, welcomed students, faculty, invited speakers, family, and friends. Dawn MortonRias, EdD, PA-C, was Commencement speaker. As the president and CEO of the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and the first PA to serve in that capacity in the organization’s 38-year history, she reminded students that they are the first class at Boston University and as such they set the pace, chart the course, and have the opportunity to positively impact health care in Boston and beyond. Students nominated the following for awards: Didactic Instructor of the Year: Robert Lowe, MD, course director of the DRx course and GI module; Clinical Site of the Year: Brockton VA CLC, Drs. Juman Hijab and

Marcus Ruopp and Sandra Vibrun-Bruno, PA-C; Carl M. Toney Student Society Award: Mary Warner, MMSc, PA-C founding director of the program. Student awards included Outstanding Academic Achievement to Flora Traub; Outstanding Clinical Achievement to Sarah Grzybinski; and the Humanitarian Award to Aline Souza for her work with the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship at Casa Esperanza. Carl Toney, PA, led the students in reading the PA Oath and closed with, “Welcome to the profession! I am so proud of you.” At graduation time, 100 percent of the class had passed their boards on the first attempt, and 43 percent already had clinical positions as physician assistants. Sixty percent of those are employed at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital in emergency medicine, hospitalist medicine, primary care, intensive care (Medical Intensive Care Unit), neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, and general surgery. n Winter 2017 | go.bu.edu/frontlinemed

Dean Antman Visits BUSM’s California Community

D

ean Karen Antman traveled to California last summer to meet with alumni, parents, and students prior to the start of the academic year. Neda and Shahram Gholami (MED’96) graciously hosted a reception in Los Gatos and Kathy and John Cohen, DDS (ParMED’17), hosted a brunch in Bel Air. These events gave attendees the opportunity to meet current and incoming medical students. Dean Antman also visited one of the School of Medicine’s most generous donors, JoAnn McGrath, at her home in Palm Desert and welcomed her into Boston University’s prestigious William Fairfield Warren Society, which recognizes University donors whose lifetime giving totals $1 million or more. An emeriti member of BU’s Board of Trustees and current member of BUSM’s Dean’s Advisory Board, McGrath has generously supported two scholarships at the School as well as the Medical Student Residence.

■ New Pathway Leading to Alzheimer’s Disease Identified

A newly discovered pathway causing neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may unlock the door to new approaches for treatment. The findings, published in the journal Cell Reports, focus on the tau protein, whose abnormal clumping has long been known to drive the nerve damage in AD. New research shows that the tau protein directs the formation of stress granules, which are molecular complexes that allow nerve cells to adapt to stress, such as injury. The tau-stress granule complex is usually short lived, but in the setting of chronic stress, tau persistently forms into a cluster, leading to the degeneration of nerve cells seen in AD.

“Scientists have known for a long time that during disease, tau protein gets modified, changes its location in nerve cells, and then aggregates,” says Benjamin Wolozin, MD, PhD, professor of pharmacology and neurology. In healthy nerve cells, tau resides in a part of the cell termed the axon, the long, slender section that carries electrical impulses away from the neuron’s body. Wolozin’s group showed that moving tau from the axon to the cell body helps the nerve cells respond to stress, such as injury. “The nerve cells do this in order to stimulate the formation of stress granules, which help the cell to adapt under stressful conditions. Stress granules instruct the cell to divert energy toward making protective proteins and away from making specialized proteins, which are less necessary during stress,” he explains. “Surprisingly, the association of tau with stress granules also caused tau to cluster.” Most stresses are short term, resolve quickly, and are therefore not a problem. “But some stresses are chronic, such as vascular disease or the accumulation of betaamyloid—a protein that accumulates outside the neuron in Alzheimer’s disease.” Chronic stress leads to excessive, 12

persistent accumulation of stress granules containing aggregated tau, which ultimately damages nerve cells, causing degeneration. His team found that reducing the amount of one of the key stress granule proteins, TIA1, prevented tau aggregation and nerve cell degeneration, and according to Wolozin, with this finding comes hope: “While still in its early stages, this work points to entirely new approaches to treating Alzheimer’s disease.”

“While the association between chronic pain and drug addiction has been observed in prior studies, this study went one step further to quantify how many of these patients are using these substances specifically to treat chronic pain. It also measured the prevalence of chronic pain in patients who screen positive for illegal drug use and prescription drug abuse,” said corresponding author Daniel Alford, MD, MPH, associate professor of medicine and assistant dean of Continuing Medical Education and

■ Study Finds Poor Readability of Dense

Breast Notifications

About half of American women have dense breasts, which makes it harder for mammograms to identify cancer and adds to a woman’s risk for cancer. Nearly half of the country’s states have passed legislation requiring women to be notified of their breast density when they receive mammogram results, despite no scientific evidence or guidelines for appropriate care for women with dense breasts. According to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, there is wide variability in dense breast notifications (DBNs) across states, and most are written at a literacy level exceeding that of the state’s population, suggesting that many women will find the information difficult to understand and this may create uncertainty when they are attempting to make decisions about supplemental breast screening. BUSM and VA Boston Healthcare researchers found only three states out of 24 had DBN readability level at the recommended eighth-grade level or lower, while some of the most difficult to read were in states where literacy levels were the lowest. The findings suggest efforts should focus on enhancing the understandability of DBNs so that all women are clearly and accurately informed about their breast density status, its effect on their breast cancer risk, and the harms and benefits of supplemental screening. ■ Many Abusing Drugs and Alcohol are Self-

Medicating Chronic Pain

With opioid addiction and prescription drug abuse considered one of the biggest public health threats of our time, many are asking why so many Americans are struggling with addiction to illegal drugs and prescription medications. New research suggests that chronic pain may be part of the answer. In a study that appeared in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, BUSM researchers found that the majority of patients misusing drugs and alcohol have chronic pain and many are using these substances to self-medicate.

If drugs are being used to self-medicate pain, patients may be reluctant to decrease, stop, or remain abstinent if their pain symptoms are not adequately managed with other treatments, including nonmedication-based treatments,” added Alford. ■ Study Reveals Association between Physical

Function and Neurological Disease

A study based on data from the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) suggests a simple test of physical functioning may be able to help physicians identify individuals who are at a higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. These findings, which appear in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, offer hope that there are easy-to-test clinical markers that will help physicians identify individuals who are at increased risk for common, age-related neurological diseases. FHS participants between the ages of 35 and 84 years were asked to walk a certain distance as fast as they could without running. The time taken to complete the walk was recorded, as well as the participant’s maximum force on an object to estimate their handgrip strength. Researchers then followed these participants for 11 years. After analyzing the results, the researchers found

After analyzing the results, the researchers found that individuals who had slow walking speeds and weak grip strength had a significant increase in risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

that individuals who had slow walking speeds and weak grip strength had a significant increase in risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, participants older than 65 years had a higher risk of stroke if their hand grip strength was weak. “These findings suggest that measuring walking speed and handgrip strength can help predict who is at a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. If these findings are confirmed, these measures can serve as additional tools to screen people for stroke or dementia,” said corresponding author Galit Weinstein, PhD, BUSM adjunct assistant professor of neurology. ■ Study Finds Three State Laws that

‘Substantially Reduce’ Gun Deaths

An analysis led by Boston University researchers shows that gun-related deaths in the United States could be reduced by more than 80 percent if three laws implemented in some states were extended nationally. In a study published in The Lancet, a research team analyzing state-level data from 2010 on gun-related deaths and 25 state-specific gun laws identified three laws that were most strongly associated with reductions in overall gun-related mortality. Laws requiring firearm identification through ballistic imprinting or microstamping were found to reduce the projected mortality risk by 84 percent; ammunition background checks, by 82 percent; and universal background checks for all gun purchases, by 61 percent. According to the study, federal implementation of all three laws would be projected to reduce the national mortality rate—10.1 per 100,000 people in 2010—to 0.16 per 100,000. Lead author Bindu Kalesan, director of the Evans Center for Translational Epidemiology & Comparative Effectiveness Research at BUSM, said the study is the first to assess a broad array of gun laws and other relevant state-level data. “The findings suggest that very few of the existing state gun-control laws actually reduce gun deaths, highlighting the importance of focusing on relevant and effective gun legislation,” she said. “Background checks for all people buying guns and ammunition, including private sales, are the most effective laws we have to reduce the number of gun deaths in the US.” Only seven states had universal background checks in 2010, while just three states had firearm identification laws that require ballistic identification or microstamping of guns that leave markings on the cartridge cases they expel when fired, making it possible to link the cases to particular guns. ■ Winter 2017 | go.bu.edu/frontlinemed

In a study published in The Lancet, a research team analyzing state-level data from 2010 on gun-related deaths and 25 state-specific gun laws identified three laws that were most strongly associated with reductions in overall gun-related mortality. Laws requiring firearm identification through ballistic imprinting or microstamping were found to reduce the projected mortality risk by 84 percent; ammunition background checks, by 82 percent; and universal background checks for all gun purchases, by 61 percent. According to the study, federal implementation of all three laws would be projected to reduce the national mortality rate—10.1 per 100,000 people in 2010—to 0.16 per 100,000. Lead author Bindu Kalesan, director of the Evans Center for Translational Epidemiology & Comparative Effectiveness Research at BUSM, said the study is the first to assess a broad array of gun laws and other relevant state-level data. “The findings suggest that very few of the existing state gun-control laws actually reduce gun deaths, highlighting the importance of focusing on relevant and effective gun legislation,” she said. “Background checks for all people buying guns and ammunition, including private sales, are the most effective laws we have to reduce the number of gun deaths in the US.” Only seven states had universal background checks in 2010, while just three states had firearm identification laws that require ballistic identification or microstamping of guns that leave markings on the cartridge cases they expel when fired, making it possible to link the cases to particular guns. ■ Winter 2017 | go.bu.edu/frontlinemed

Neil Ganem Receives ACS Research Scholar Grant NEIL J. GANEM, PHD, assistant professor of pharmacology and medicine, Section of Hematology and Medical Oncology, has received a four-year, $792,000 Research Scholar Grant from the American Cancer Society. Ganem’s research seeks to define the tumor suppression mechanisms that limit the proliferation of aneuploid cells (those cells possessing an abnormal number of chromosomes), as well as to identify the common genetic adaptations made by cancer cells to overcome these growth barriers. Over the last decade, significant effort has been focused on identifying the underlying mechanisms that generate aneuploidy in cancer cells. However, there remains a lack of data describing how cells “sense” that they have an abnormal number of chromosomes and should stop proliferating. “The aims of the ACS grant proposal are designed to identify how the tumor suppressor pathway, called the Hippo pathway, senses abnormal chromosome numbers, as well as to determine how cancer

Moving forward, we would like to leverage these discoveries and develop new strategies to reactivate the Hippo pathway in human cancer cells,” Ganem said. Since 1946, the American Cancer Society has funded research and training of health professionals to investigate the causes, prevention, and Neil Ganem early detection of cancer, as well as new treatments, cancer survivorship, and end-of-life support for patients and their families.

Bob Woodruff Foundation Grant Expands Intimate Partner Violence Intervention

The Chester S. Keefer, MD Society • The Chester S. Keefer, MD Society was established as a means of recognizing individuals whose personal philanthropy has helped advance the dual research and education missions of Boston University School of Medicine. The Society is named in honor of Dr. Chester S. Keefer, whose foresight and determination in roles as chairman of the Department of Medicine, dean of Boston University School of Medicine, and director of the Medical Center, were responsible for laying the foundation for the Boston University Medical Center. In memory of his spirit, we honor those donors whose total contributions have reached $50,000 or more at the School of Medicine. Names in bold are new members. GIVING LEVELS:

skills, motivational strategies, and VA implementation issues. Approximately 80 master’s-level clinicians received the training. Taft also conducts weekly telephone consultation with all SAH providers across the country to discuss group activities, challenging clinical and treatment process topics, and related matters. Creech conducts monthly consultation calls with each site that focus on overcoming barriers to implementing the program, as well as program evaluation. The team will oversee program assessment at each site using pre- and post-treatment questionnaires completed by trainers, participants, and (when possible) partners to evaluate program delivery and outcomes. The foundation’s grant will accelerate the recommendation by the Department of Veterans Affairs domestic violence task force to implement SAH across the VA system. “We owe it to our veterans and their loved ones to help with the psychological consequences of war,” says Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Behavioral Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD Terence Keane, PhD. “We greatly appreciate the commitment by the Bob Woodruff Foundation to preventing this too-frequent reality for veterans following service.” Taft is working to develop the training curriculum so it can be more efficiently disseminated to additional sites, both military and civilian, with the goal of reducing relationship violence in varied regions and settings. ”We are only at the beginning of this work to bring more effective violence prevention and cessation programs to all settings where there is such a need. Much more work needs to be done, but we are on the verge of something big here, and are ending a lot of violence.” n

n June 2016 the Bob Woodruff Foundation awarded Professor of Psychiatry Casey Taft, PhD, a one-year grant for the national expansion of an eight-year-old intervention program to reduce and prevent intimate partner violence (IPV) in veteran populations. Foundation support has expanded the Strength at Home (SAH) initiative to include six additional Veterans Affairs (VA) health care sites in addition to the 10 programs running nationwide. Each site is expected to serve approximately 60 individuals in the course of a year. A previous study by Taft found that one-third of all veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) reported recent physical partner violence in the past year, while 91 percent reported psychological aggression in the past year (a finding that likely underestimates true incidence). This is the only domestic violence program found to be effective in a randomized clinical trial in preventing and reducing physical and/or psychological violence in military couples. SAH is unique in addressing the trauma that is often significant for people with a history of violent behavior, an approach not typically used by the majority of domestic violence programs. Those who experience serious trauma, Taft says, “are more likely to assume the worst in others, respond with hostility, and have difficulty with controlling behaviors because of their prior experiences.” Through SAH, participants learn to communicate more effectively, express feelings underlying anger, and de-escalate difficult situations. “It’s exciting to see the hard work of so many people to develop the first evidence-based program to prevent partner violence in this population pay off. As we train more and more clinicians to do our program, we are seeing the impact of these efforts increase exponentially,” he adds. The grant has enabled the Strength at Home project team (Drs. Taft, Christopher Murphy, from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and Suzannah Creech, from the Central Texas Veterans Research Foundation) to conduct two-day training programs at the sites in Orlando, Florida; Battle Creek, Michigan; Jackson, Mississippi; Chicago, Illinois; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Albany, New York. Each training program includes psychoeducational curricula, interactive and role-playing exercises, and discussion of basic IPV intervention

Alumni Sight: The Story of Vision David A. Fleishman, MD (MED'69)

F

ollowing graduation, I interned at New England Deaconess Hospital in the Harvard teaching complex (now the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical

Center). I returned to the BU-affiliated hospitals and completed my ophthalmology residency from 1970 to 1973. Private practice near the StoughtonBrockton line occupied nearly all of my waking hours between 1973 and 2001, when hand and cardiac difficulties forced my retirement.

I am a student of history and a collector of various objects since age seven. My small antique eyeglasses collection became my focus and led to the creation of www.antiquespectacles.com; a front-page Wall Street Journal article on April 4, 2006, brought more publicity. I hope you enjoy visiting this unique online educational resource. In April 2008, the Emmy award-winning film production company Koenig Films contacted me for assistance with a few early antique eyeglass photos for their “400 Years of the Telescope” project; the resulting PBS documentary became the most successful science film documentary in history, achieving five primetime slots and various honors. In September 2013, Kris Koenig and his partner Anita Ingrao—who sadly, has since passed away—contacted me again. We quickly decided to create a film documentary project not just on eyeglasses but also on the broader subject of Sight—Past, Present, and Future. I chaired an advisory board to oversee the project and ensure its scientific accuracy. The board represents the vision care industry, including five multinational companies. This work has been a labor of love for me and the nearly 20 other individuals involved. Three years later, after thousands of hours of filming on six continents, including hundreds of interviews, the project was complete. Narrated by Sir Elton John, SIGHT: The Story of Vision is a one-hour documentary that covers the science, medicine, technology, and humanity of vision. It is the first Color-Blind Assisted (CA) film in history (there are more than 300 million color-blind individuals worldwide) and was initially broadcast on October 13 to coincide with World Sight Day on public television stations across the US. It will air internationally through Bell Media distribution beginning in 2017.

CLASS NOTES 1951 Burton I. Korelitz of New

York, New York, writes, “I retired from private practice last June but remain busy in inflammatory bowel disease research at Lenox Hill Hospital. In October, I’ll receive the Samuel Weiss Award from the American College of Gastroenterology at their annual meeting in Las Vegas. My daughters, Nina and Jean, are producing a play based on a James Joyce short story, The Dead, which will run at the American Irish Historical Society in Manhattan with a background as written by the author in 1904 Dublin.”

1952 Nicholas Giosa of

Wethersfield, Connecticut, writes, “My book of collected poems, This Sliding Light of Day, published by Antrim House in 2015, was a category finalist in the 2016 Eric Hoffer Awards. It has been generously reviewed in the current issue of the Connecticut River Review, the Connecticut Poetry Society’s annual publication.”

• SEEING: A Photon’s Journey Across Space and Mind is a full-dome planetarium experience narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson that is being distributed to over 1,500 planetariums worldwide free of charge through the International Planetarium Society. • A more in-depth look at specific topics is available through a mobile iOS and Android app called “Second

The most comprehensive program on human vision ever presented to the general public, this project and its potential benefits are enormous. You can follow it all at www.storyofvision. com. My retirement has certainly been far from boring, and I feel fortunate that my life’s journey following my BUSM medical and ophthalmology training has evolved in this manner. Retirement for me has been a “sandbox” and I have developed friendships all over the world.

1962 Generoso G. Gascon of

North Falmouth, Massachusetts, writes, “Cape Cod Magazine and South Shore Living named me a ‘Top Doc’ in Child Neurology in the November 2015 issue featuring the ‘Top Docs 2015’ working on Cape Cod and the South Shore. After I ‘retired’ from Brown University in 2002 as a professor emeritus, Clinical Neuroscience and Pediatrics, I returned to Saudi Arabia for five years, this time in Jeddah, chairing the Pediatrics Department and the Research Centre at King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre. I then settled down on Cape Cod and began working in part-time practice for Massachusetts General Hospital’s Neurology Department in Sandwich, where three days a week I see children and adolescents and read EEGs. My autobiography, ‘A Clinician’s Odyssey,’ was published in the Journal of Child Neurology in March 2009.”

1962 Norman C. Gaudrault of

Danvers, Massachusetts, writes, “I am healthy and retired. I miss the practice of surgery but not the worry.”

Topsfield, Massachusetts, writes, “In 2013, my novel Two Years in America was published by the Société des Ecrivains in Paris. The French version, Deux ans en Amérique, which I coauthored with a French friend, Georges Idier, was published in 2010. I have presented this work to a number of book clubs and organizations and have been pleased with the response. It has been a very gratifying project in my retirement.”

of Tampa, Florida, writes, “After 20-plus years of a rewarding and successful general surgical practice in Tampa, government intervention sent me to law school to better understand this intrusion. I had hoped that the government would get it all straightened out, and I would return to my surgical practice; they didn’t, so I didn’t. At 86, I have been practicing health law for more than 20 years, now in my son’s firm, and helping fellow physicians stay out of trouble or extricate themselves from practice

1964 John P. Cocchiarella of

Holliston, Massachusetts, writes, “I am happy to note that in July 2015, I retired after 47 years of practicing pediatrics, the first two of which were in the US Navy, and the last 45 of which were in Milford. I hope I was able to help the countless children and their families who

came to me for care and was gratified to hear the appreciative comments of those families when I left practice. I spend my time relaxing a lot and no longer worrying about phone calls at all hours or whether I had done the best I could for any given child. I enjoy a little traveling and, mostly, my six granddaughters and one step-grandson. Best wishes to all my classmates.”

1966 Peter A. Schwartz of

Port St. Lucie, Florida, writes, “I was very pleased in June 2016 to be nominated and elected to the eight-physician American Medical Association’s Council of Ethical and Judicial Affairs, which is responsible for maintaining the AMA Code of Medical Ethics and dealing with physicians whose behavior is outside the code. A seven-year term should carry me through to retirement (though my wife doubts that likelihood!).”

1967 Peter M. Glassman of

San Antonio, Texas, writes, “I’ve authored several medical thrillers, including The Eyeman, The Duty Crew, The Happy Hat, The Myoin Factor, and The Helios Rain. The print and eBook versions of my latest modern terrorist thriller, Ocean City HQ, became available in September 2016. It’s about Islamic terrorists embedded within the US and offers, like my other novels, a solution to the problem. I am a retired anesthesiologist and addictionologist who draws attention to PTSD and cites consequence to self, family, friends, and colleagues. The disease is treatable, recognition is critical, and understanding it is crucial.”

1967 Egle D. Pedini of Naples,

Florida, writes, “Ken (MED‘66) and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary this year. Retired, we continue to indulge our passion for worldwide travel, lifelong learning, community service, and enjoying our three grandchildren. We attended Ken’s 50th BUSM reunion in May 2016 and look forward to reconnecting with my BUSM classmates at my 50th reunion in May 2017.”

All three novels are set in 1950s New York; Alice is modeled after my older sister. About a con artist, the third book culminates in a thoroughbred horse race.”

1974 Robert H. Gilman of Ann

Arbor, Michigan, writes, “After 31 years in plastic surgery private practice in Wellesley, Massachusetts, I accepted an offer to join the full-time faculty at the University of Michigan. As a clinical instructor for many years in the Harvard Plastic Surgery program, I discovered that my clinical teaching days were the best days of the week. By luck, the residency that I trained in at the University of Michigan was looking for an experienced aesthetic surgeon, and I am now completing my third year as an assistant professor of plastic surgery. I find this a wonderful way to ‘bookend’ my career as a plastic surgeon.”

1976 Mark S. Goulston of Santa

Monica, California, writes, “A finalist in the2016 Audie Awards, my seventh book, Talking to Crazy: How to Deal with the Irrational and Impossible People in Your Life (Amazon Books, 2015), was also featured on Oprah.com and reached number one in four Amazon business categories. I also serve as chief education officer at POP Protocol, a company that trains law enforcement and civilians to avoid escalation at traffic stops.”

1977 Andrew J. Breuder of

Bedford, New Hampshire, writes, “I retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs in July 2015 as chief of staff of the Manchester VA Medical Center for almost 15 years and have been traveling for much of the past year to visit grandchildren.

1977 Louis N. Vogel of New

York, New York, writes, “I’m still a dermatologist in private practice in Manhattan and teaching dermatologic surgery at NYU. We now regularly go to the Mayan Medical Aid Clinic in Lago Atitlan, Guatemala. Of course, our more than 20-year connection to Morocco continues!”

1978 Lillian E. Cohn of Philadel-

phia, Pennsylvania, writes, “Dear classmates, I continue to practice in Philadelphia, now in MDVIP concierge internal medicine. I love this model of practice—there’s more time for patients and more time for physicians. Last year I had time to travel to Morocco, Berlin, and Portugal. Great trips. My four sons continue to do well; one each in Philly and Chicago and two in Brooklyn. Life is great. Wish I could return to medical school now—I would finally know what to pay closer attention to this time! If you come to Philly, look me up. I would love to hear what the rest of you are up to.”

1978 Hardy Kornfeld of Way-

land, Massachusetts, writes, “I’m a professor of medicine at UMass Medical School, where I’ve been since I left the faculty of the BUSM Pulmonary Center in 2003. Still doing some clinical pulmonary and critical care, but mostly research in TB. That work used to be all basic science but in the past few years I’ve combined basic and clinical studies on the links between TB and diabetes. Now I’m spending way too much time on planes, flying to study sites in India and South Africa.”

I had been the medical director of PM&R at the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital since 1989. I also serve as the medical director for Electromyography and Electrodiagnosis, Orthotic, Prosthetic, Amputee, and Orthopedic Services at the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and am an assistant professor of physical medicine & rehabilitation at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an adjunct clinical assistant professor of rehabilitation medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College.”

1984 Marcia F. Katz of Hous-

What an exciting time it is in the maturation of the medical school. I look forward to working closely with all of UCF’s hospital and community partners in creating initiatives that reflect the changing health care landscape. I will be in Orlando starting in December 2016, so please let me know if you are visiting the city’s many attractions. It would be great to see alumni friends.”

1985 Scott Greenbaum of

Kings Point, New York, writes, “Since graduating, I’ve become a bibliophile. My author of choice is Samuel Dashiell Hammett— I have collected his five novels (some signed), short stories, Black Mask serials, and his inscribed photo that illustrates his definitive bibliography. This year I acquired the trial-proof jacket made for his second novel, The Dain Curse (the only one ever made for any of his novels). I also own the hand-corrected galley proofs for this work. The best result of buying the jacket was my meeting with Hammett’s bibliographer Rick Layman and Hammett’s granddaughter, who authenticated it on the spot. I also collect Fleming and Stevenson— Spade, Bond, and Help—to relive the tedium of cataract surgery.”

1993 Jeffrey R. Johnson of

meadow, Massachusetts, writes, “I just returned from the Middle East, where I spent the last three years working for the Canadian University Health Network/Princess Margaret Cancer Centre consulting team at the Kuwait Cancer Control Center to update, re-engineer, and computerize their national cancer center while teaching and practicing surgical oncology. I’m finally back with my family full time and loving it. I started my new job this month as the medical director for surgical oncology at the Western Connecticut Health Network and am splitting my time between Danbury and Norwalk Hospitals. I guess I’m destined to live on the road. I am having a great time and really appreciating being back in the States. I would love to hear from any classmates from my 1985 or 1994 years! Let’s get back in touch.”

2006 Andrew J. Rogers of

Raynham, Massachusetts, writes, “It was great seeing some classmates at the spring reunion! I am now chief of orthopedics for Morton Hospital and a team physician for Boston College Athletics and UMass Dartmouth. I have been working with USA Hockey since moving back to the US after my residency at McGill, and was excited to go to Germany and France in May 2016 to serve as the team physician for the US National Hockey Team at the World Championships. Go USA!”

2008 Jennifer A. Ducie of Bal-

timore, Maryland, writes, “I’ve had a busy year! I finally completed my training as a gynecologic oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in June 2016. I moved from New York City to Baltimore the same month and had my first baby (a beautiful little girl, Isla Grace) on June 16. I also just started my first job as an attending in August at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore, and got married September 17. My husband Jason and I could not be more excited about life right now; our little Isla is the most precious gift. I hope everyone is well!”

1995 William H. Sabina of

Boston, Massachusetts, writes, “I just finished my child neurology residency at Massachusetts General Hospital and am an attending at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, where I will continue to see children and adolescents with a wide variety of neurological issues.

Wish I could return to medical school now—I would finally know what to pay closer attention to this time! If you come to Philly, look me up. I would love to hear what the rest of you are up to.”

1978 Hardy Kornfeld of Way-

land, Massachusetts, writes, “I’m a professor of medicine at UMass Medical School, where I’ve been since I left the faculty of the BUSM Pulmonary Center in 2003. Still doing some clinical pulmonary and critical care, but mostly research in TB. That work used to be all basic science but in the past few years I’ve combined basic and clinical studies on the links between TB and diabetes. Now I’m spending way too much time on planes, flying to study sites in India and South Africa.”

White Plains, New York, writes, “I was appointed DIO (Designated Institutional Officer) for Graduate Medical Education in May 2015, working toward establishing a physical medicine and rehabilita-

tion (PM&R) residency program at the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, which admitted its first group of PM&R residents in July 2016. I had been the medical director of PM&R at the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital since 1989. I also serve as the medical director for Electromyography and Electrodiagnosis, Orthotic, Prosthetic, Amputee, and Orthopedic Services at the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and am an assistant professor of physical medicine & rehabilitation at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an adjunct clinical assistant professor of rehabilitation medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College.”

1984 Marcia F. Katz of Hous-

ton, Texas, writes, “I have accepted the position of associate dean of clinical affairs at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine—I am thrilled and honored to be chosen to participate in the growth of that new academic medical enterprise. What an exciting time it is in the maturation of the medical school. I look forward to working closely with all of UCF’s hospital and community partners in creating initiatives that reflect the changing health care landscape. I will be in Orlando starting in December 2016, so please let me know if you are visiting the city’s many attractions. It would be great to see alumni friends.”

1985 Scott Greenbaum of

Kings Point, New York, writes, “Since graduating, I’ve become a bibliophile. My author of choice is Samuel Dashiell Hammett— I have collected his five novels (some signed), short stories, Black Mask serials, and his inscribed photo that illustrates his definitive bibliography. This year I acquired the trial-proof jacket made for his second novel, The Dain Curse (the only one ever made for any of his novels). I also own the hand-corrected galley proofs for this work. The best result of buying the jacket was my meeting with Hammett’s bibliographer Rick Layman and Hammett’s granddaughter, who authenticated it on the spot. I also collect Fleming and Stevenson— Spade, Bond, and Help—to relive the tedium of cataract surgery.”

meadow, Massachusetts, writes, “I just returned from the Middle East, where I spent the last three years working for the Canadian University Health Network/Princess Margaret Cancer Centre consulting team at the Kuwait Cancer Control Center to update, re-engineer, and computerize their national cancer center while teaching and practicing surgical oncology. I’m finally back with my family full time and loving it. I started my new job this month as the medical director for surgical oncology at the Western Connecticut Health Network and am splitting my time between Danbury and Norwalk Hospitals. I guess I’m destined to live on the road. I am having a great time and really appreciating being back in the States. I would love to hear from any classmates from my 1985 or 1994 years! Let’s get back in touch.”

2006 Andrew J. Rogers of

Raynham, Massachusetts, writes, “It was great seeing some classmates at the spring reunion! I am now chief of orthopedics for Morton Hospital and a team physician for Boston College Athletics and UMass Dartmouth. I have been working with USA Hockey since moving back to the US after my residency at McGill, and was excited to go to Germany and France in May 2016 to serve as the team physician for the US National Hockey Team at the World Championships. Go USA!”

2008 Jennifer A. Ducie of Bal-

timore, Maryland, writes, “I’ve had a busy year! I finally completed my training as a gynecologic oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in June 2016. I moved from New York City to Baltimore the same month and had my first baby (a beautiful little girl, Isla Grace) on June 16. I also just started my first job as an attending in August at Mercy Hospital in Baltimore, and got married September 17. My husband Jason and I could not be more excited about life right now; our little Isla is the most precious gift. I hope everyone is well!”

I was named ‘Team Health Emergency Medicine Physician of the Year’ in May 2016 at the National Convention in Atlanta.”

ington, Maryland, writes, “I was recently appointed director of the Division of Tropical Public Health at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, and still serve as an active duty Army Medical Corps officer and continue my long-standing work in tropical medicine and global health for the Department of Defense.”
