My family was a multicultural, blended family and my sister struggled with congenital heart failure as a child. She died when I was 8 years old and that experience became a defining moment in my life. In 8th grade when asked to choose a career path, I knew that it would be either a disc jockey or a doctor, but the surprising realization that I had difficulty understanding the lyrics to songs cut short my road to disc jockey. School provided opportunities to explore and excel in a multitude of subjects, but driver's education was difficult. I suspect not having a car growing up had a lot to do with that shortcoming! We had a limited lifestyle, but those struggles never circumvented me from pursuing goals. However, it did give me a strong appreciation of the difficulties income challenged patients face in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I knew pursuing a life dedicated to medicine and teaching others healthy habits was a chance for me to do something good for others and feed my soul. I thrive on change and diversity and continue to pursue learning opportunities. New technology and ideas shared with students and patients keep me eternally excited. I encourage all my patients to schedule their annual physicals. This is always a good opportunity to teach age appropriate health goals. My advice: Exercise regularly – doing something that keeps your body moving forward. Change it up, but keep moving! Develop good eating habits – eat organically and if that is not an option, make it a point to stay away from processed foods and stay balanced. Design your life around healthy habits – avoid tobacco, seek emotional help when you need it, and remember to set goals for yourself so you continue to move forward. I think that I am a better physician now that I have a breadth of knowledge and have gone through struggles, aches, and pains. I have a better understanding of patients' hurdles and feel even more equipped with solutions based on my experiential knowledge. I can also now understand why my physician mentors had a difficult time deciding when to retire. After multiple years in medicine, the knowledge base is extensive and that brings with it a chance to help even more people more effectively.
