One Down, Seven to Go!

Quarter one is over.   Those in the know told me that I’d be a doctor before I knew it, and at the moment, it seems they might be right. The first 12 weeks are over, and I’m surprised to be here already.   So what do I have to say? It’s a hectic pace. It’s not easy to add yet more to an already consuming life.

SUNM Experience: Last week we gathered to hear the story of Naprapathy in New Mexico from the director, Pat Nuzzo, and some political allies (local lobbyists).
