Meet Dr. Rob
Doug has known Rob Gorski since college and they've kept in touch over the years. Rob is an emergency room doctor in New York City. He's been practicing medicine there since he finished school. Rob came to visit us when we were teaching in Alaska, a rare treat, since Nobody wanted to fly all the way out there for a visit. He did a lot of lecturing, showed medical pictures, let the kids experiment with some of the tools of the trade, and hopefully inspired the next generation to pursue medicine. When we moved here to Frenchboro, Rob was keen to come to the beautiful island and see the sights, meet the kids, and share some of his knowledge. Here he is going through the 'welcome line', an old school tradition where all the kids line up to introduce themselves to newcomers.
