I started to volunteer when I was in junior high. I volunteered at a radiation therapy center for cancer. And once I started to get involved in that, I understood that I could bring together my love of science with the ability to help people. And now here at Rush, I’m involved in gene therapy studies for Parkinson’s disease. We believed for a long time it would be medications that would be the clue to improving patients’ quality of life. But now we have these very exciting therapies that we’re testing in the clinic. And we’re very hopeful that these will be helpful in the long run for patients.
You occasionally have a patient that comes in and says, “Doc, I’m better.” And that is probably the most rewarding thing that we can hear when we’re in the clinic.
