Afterthoughts

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Sep 1, 2011 - Science - 60 pages
Afterthoughts describes rural life and beekeeping in Iowa, before the author was a medical student at the State University of Iowa. Turner traveled as a Pfizer medical student representative in the 1952 summertime, before working on an acute poliomyelitis ward later that summer. A blind date with polio nurse Dorothy Turner led to marriage in 1953, and the experiences of medical intern and nursing life together in Phoenix, followed by nursing and U.S. Public Health Medical Service positions in 1955 serving Oklahomas Cherokee and Choctaw Native Americans. Orthopedic residency training in San Francisco and Philadelphia preceded a long career at the renowned Lovelace Clinic in Albuquerque. After Dorothys 1985 death from cancer, eventual marriage in 1990 to Karen Howard led both of us to challenging and meaningful retirement non-profit organization positions, and to unique foreign travel experiences. Afterthoughts is a retrospective book, after previous publication of Pathways Taken - A Hawkeye In the Enchanted Land by AuthorHouse in 2004.
