Dr. H. Joachim Deeg came to the United States in 1976 after medical school, and he thought I’d stay a year or two and then return to Germany. But life intervened, or as David Whyte, one of his favorite poets, says, “Ten years ago, I turned my face for a moment, and it became my life.” This has been a great place to work because he can combine my three loves: researching, mentoring and providing care. Two months out of the year, he sees patients on the transplant service at SCCA, which sparks him to find even better approaches to treating disease. It’s a privilege to be here, and with that comes an obligation to strive for the best.
