Was asked to give a little chat 'about what it is like to have practiced naturopathic medicine for almost three decades' during a student lunch at The College of Naturopathic Medicine at The University of Bridgeport. The prime mover behind this was one of our clinic externs, Dori (center, turquoise top) who wanted to have the school membership benefit from my 'sage advice.'
'Sage' in naturopathic medicine usually translates into 'aging hippy.'
I only fleetingly touched on my work with blood groups, and that was actually kind of nice, since I could more reflect on what being a physican has meant to me, versus an author, provocateur, etc.
At the end we did gather all the externs and preceptors for a picture:
Me and the current 2006 D'Adamo Clinic Preceptors, Externs and Resident: (l-r) Michelle, Dori, Lauren, Julie, Ani and Samm.
What an honor it is to work with these people. What talent.
