A lot of our research that we’re doing here at Rush is going into injury prevention. I see a lot of concussions. And trying to get athletes back and treating the concussion properly is one thing. But I really think that if we can focus on ways to prevent concussions in the first place, or at least decrease the impact that they have on a developing brain, for example, that would be even a better thing.
I think the aspect of helping in the community, outreach in the community, was big even when I was a resident. I’ve worked at homeless shelters, giving free care. I go to Chicago public schools, and I provide free sports physicals. So I try to do things to maintain my foundation in the community, because I think that builds on me as a person and reflects who I am as a physician.
