When I was a kid, my parents ran together – and both completed the TCS New York City Marathon. While I attended medical school, I ran, too. I’ve recently resumed running as part of a weight-loss plan. I appreciate that running is a great way to inspire my patients and de-stress. The TCS New York City Marathon is my first marathon, and taking on this great challenge is important because it blends both professional and personal goals. Now, I’m on a 20-week training schedule, and I’m fundraising in my community to support the wonderful WMCHealth programs, such as palliative care and hospice, that are benefits to my patients.
I am excited to represent Good Samaritan Hospital and WMCHealth in the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon. I am going the distance for our patients.
Thank you for your support!
