After challenging undergrad at LUC and a graduate degree in history during the 1960s, I went to Brazil as a Peace Corps volunteer, and returned and got into health at the Lung Assoc, American Cancer Society.  Then I started one of the 1st Hospital-based community health promotion programs in the US. Next, I  worked at the American Medical Assn for 10 years. I am always interested in global health, so after “retiring,” I have been teaching global health at UIC and LUC. I am also active with APHA & the American Heart Assn.
