Health Issues

Many of you know that my health is quickly deteriorating. As such, the time has come for me to leave the AMMC. My hope is that I have given you all you need to keep the center alive and growing – making it far better than I could ever have acquired.

I will retain an advisory position and be available for meetings for as long as I possibly can. It has been my sincere and greatest pleasure knowing and meeting all of you. I have been utterly delighted with the small steps we have achieved.

After the BioPharm event, my time in SL will be severly limited and when I am in, save for AMMC meetings and lectures and/or events. Please keep in mind, it will not be long before I am unable to attend these functions, as well.

Thank you to each of you for catching my vision and trying to build something international. I dare say we could have achieved more had we been purely based within one institution. I still retain my conviction that an international arena for medical study and collaboration is more than possible and is highly probable, if we move forward. I will do what I can for the limited time I will remain available.

With much warmth and care towards all of you,

    I am quite sad to hear of this news. God bless you and thank you for inspiring us onward. We are so proud of you and your pioneering spirit which who has led the way. You have provided us with a path and grander vision then we ever thought possible. We owe you a tremendous debt of gratitude for your inspiration and passion. Thank you so much.

    You’ve always been there for your students…I wish we could be there for you. I’m not certain what to say except that you have my support and my prayers. All of us love you and will never forget what you’ve taught us. Nat
