Why I Care
"It makes me happy to combine my career with my interests, and help people at the same time. My hobby is playing classical piano. I've always been active in the Doctor-Patient Music Connection at the Arts and Medicine Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. Doctors and patients play a series of concerts with the help of local professional musicians and internationally renowned artists. The aim is to improve medical care, by raising the level of the patient-doctor relationship and by getting the therapeutic benefit of musical performances."
