We called this issue of MD-Update “Inside and Out.” That theme gave us the opportunity to meet with Kentucky physicians from different specialties, all working on various internal and external systems. Dermatology plastics, orthopedics, gastroenterology, hematology, and vascular are all represented. It was enjoyable for us to cover so many topics. We hope you enjoy meeting the Kentucky doctors we spoke with.
The Lexington Medical Society’s 26th Annual Golf Outing was also fun. It was a brilliantly pleasant day, full of Kentucky sunshine, mild breezes, and good company. MD-Update was pleased to be a sponsor and to help raise money for the many non-profit organizations that receive grants from the Lexington Medical Society’s Foundation.
Readers of my letters in the past know that I am a baseball fan, grew up on Kent Island, Maryland in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, and that I have referred to my father, Gil Dunn, Sr. occasionally. My father was a pharmacist, who owned his drug store, the only one on the Island and was sometimes paid by the local watermen for their medicine in fresh oysters, crabs, clams, or fish. Really, not a bad way to do business in a small community.
My father was also a baseball fan, and one day in 1966 his childhood hero, Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx paid him a surprise visit in his drugstore. It was a very happy moment for my dad that I want to share with sons, fathers, and longtime baseball fans. It’s probably one of the first photographs I took, and I’m so glad I did.
Gil Dunn, Sr. June 1918-August 2015.
Until next time, all the best,
Gil DunnPublisher, MD-Update
