- My life is closely integrated with my family…hiking, cycling, kayaking, skiing; swimming…we are outside more than inside.
- I strongly advocate a physically active life, trying to lead by example, including acting in a spiritually connected Christian way.
- Advocacy for staunch environmental conservation and advise everyone to EAT PLANTS!!
I believe that ongoing education, a life-long learning process, is very important and have therefore worked hard to maintain my role as a clinical teacher of Family Medicine. As a physician I view myself an important teacher to my patients, emphasizing a healthy life-style to prevent disease and a strong scientific connection in order to be able to apply the hugely miraculous knowledge which allows us to more effectively treat disease.
