Friends, Trojans, Wildcats: Lend me your ears (and your soles):
I plan to leave my beloved University of Arizona effective this summer to help develop a program that has the potential to affect millions of people. I have tentatively accepted a position at the University of Southern California (USC). USC’s renowned Keck School of Medicine, combined with the world-class resources of LA County/USC Medical Center and the National Rehabilitation Center at Rancho Los Amigos, have the team, the resources and scale to make a real, lasting, and positive difference to help our most high risk patients navigate their world a little better.
Please know that I have been and am grateful for the lifelong friendships I have made at UofA. I’m equally grateful for the enormous impact those friendships have made beyond our walls. These past nine years have been the most enjoyable of my career and Tania and our three ladies, Alexandria, Natalie and Nina leave behind a lifetime of memories in this wonderful community.
I owe our great University and patients more than I can ever repay.
Here’s to what’s next. Here’s to spreading the SALSA.
