Hello My Friend,

Have you ever heard of the term connector?  Malcolm Gladwell, in his bestselling book Tipping Point, used this term.  In his book he described how some people know quite a few other people.   It seems we are each potentially closer to many others in the world than we might realize.

After learning about this, I started looking at some of the connections we have had through the people in our practice and it was fascinating to think about the connections.  We had a retired Indiana Hall of Fame announcer share how his start in broadcasting involved time working under the famous Kentucky basketball coach Adolph Rupp. We had a woman who met Hilary Clinton after her grandson married the child of her former college roommate, a sports telegrapher who was working in the Notre Dame press box at a game where Bob Hope and Jim Nabors were present, and we even had one gentleman at a business meeting in Boston who was able to eat dinner with a Mr. Key who was the grandson of a famous song writer who happened to be Frances Scott Key who wrote the Star Spangled Banner. We also had a gentleman who went on a date with a ‘Bond Girl’ from the old James Bond movie series that featured the old time James Bond played by actor Roger Moore. 

It has been fun to explore and think about some of the connections we have within our dermatology family. And more importantly, it reminds me how we are each tied together in so many ways, often more than we realize. In understanding how closely we are related, it would seem we could see we are meant to work together and make our world a better place together.

May you and your loved ones find a world willing to work with you for causes greater than any one of us can accomplish alone.
