I practiced obstetrics and gynecology for 14 years until medical (heart) problems forced me to retire. After experiencing a cardiac arrest, I became interested in end-of-life issues and was asked to consider serving part time with hospice. This has led to a much less stressful "job" as Medical Director of Hospice and Palliative Care of Nash General Hospital. My primary motive for this is a result of my continuing growth in Christianity. "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." (Philippians 1:21)
