I became dean of Rush Medical College this year, and after my first day I went to a local Walgreen’s to buy some household items. The lady at the checkout counter asked, “You’re not from around here, are you?” I said no, I was moving from North Carolina and joining Rush Medical College. She told me Rush had saved her life: “I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The doctors at Rush gave me hope when others didn’t. And now five years later I am doing well” I knew then that I had made the right decision to come here.
