"I am one of the most fortunate people I know. I found something I really love to do every day and plan to continue for many more years to come. I read and not only keep up, but help advance the cause of science by writing in the medical literature and training new doctors both here and in China. Some people love golf, others sailing- my hobby is medicine and teaching and meeting new people. I have no plans for retirement and love working with my colleagues and partner."
