Quietly in service

Mark Krivopal, Medical Director of one of our hospitalist groups, sent me this note:

Dr. Kwan Kew Lai is one of our hospitalists and has been with us for a few years. Besides being an excellent physician with a previous training in infectious disease, she is also an avid marathon runner and, more importantly, constantly does philanthropic work. She's been all over Africa helping people with AIDS. She's been to New Orleans after Katrina. Now she is back from Haiti.

In your blog you talk about some other members of the BIDMC and Boston medical community providing relief in Haiti. I wanted you to be aware of Kwan Kew as well. She does these things without the fanfare or really even telling anyone. I feel incredibly privileged to know and work with her.

Here's her blog.
