or someone whose intention in graduate school was to become “an overeducated engineer,” Dr. Robert Short instead ended up a “glorified plumber.” His path to “plumbing” started once he completed his undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering at Wright State University. “I still wasn’t sure if I wanted to be a doctor, a teacher or an engineer,” he says. While in an M.D./Ph.D. program at The Ohio State University he met an interventional radiologist who asked Short to accompany him to the lab to watch him perform an image-guided procedure that made a large tumor in a child’s neck basically disappear. “It just blew me away,” he says. It also convinced him that he should study medicine and become what he is today: a vascular interventional radiologist at the Dayton VA Medical Center. “I often tell my patients that really I’m a glorified plumber,” says Short. That’s because many of his procedures are performed inside blood vessels using a needle, a wire and a catheter or ablation probes. “The blood vessels provide us with a route to reach almost any tissue in the body,” he says. “I can go into a pipe in the wrist or the leg and I can steer a catheter right up next to a tumor and put beads that are loaded with chemotherapy into that tumor and cause that tumor to shrink and die.” —ERIC SPANGLER

aving a skin condition is more than uncomfortable—it can also affect how you perceive yourself and live your life. “The impact that skin diseases can have on folks’ lives is really significant. Some people will limit their social activity, going out to the store, going anywhere because they have visible skin rash,” says Dr. Julian Trevino, a dermatologist with Wright State Physicians. Trevino says he enjoys helping patients of all ages, from newborns to 90-year-olds, get back to having a full life. For example, Trevino, one of the

few pediatric dermatologists in the region, says helping young children with eczema can relieve parents of a lot of stress while helping teens with acne can make them feel more secure. While many skin conditions are genetic, others can be avoided with some smart planning. Trevino says you can decrease your risk of skin cancer by wearing sunscreen or a long-sleeve shirt or by avoiding direct sunlight between the hours of 10 and 4. “If you can do activities in the morning before 10 or in the afternoon after 4 your chances of getting those damaging sun rays is much less than between the hours of 10 and 4,” Revino says. “The sun is the biggest enemy for people’s skin.” —CORINNE MINARD
