Change is quickly descending on the medical field, and Triological Society President Fred Owens, MD, of the Owens Ear Center in Dallas, Texas, discussed adapting to change in his presidential address to audience members.
Change has played a big role in both his career and his personal life, he said. He told a story about a change in his life course that occurred as he was heading off to college. In those days, it was not uncommon to hitchhike there, which is what Dr. Owens was doing, carrying just one small bag. Someone stopped to pick him up near a fork in the road, he said, but the driver was headed toward Georgetown College in Kentucky, which is not where Dr. Owens was registered. Dr. Owens’ brother was at Georgetown, so he climbed into the truck anyway. There, he met someone he described as “a pretty nice-looking lady.” | ← Previous | | | Next → | Single Page
