North meets south! Mike Durbin, Loren Feldner (South Suburban), Ken Johnson (Northwest Suburban), and John Moore (Englewood) enjoyed a weekend snowmobiling in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They rode almost 800 miles in three days and could still smile for a picture! Miner’s Castle and Lake Superior are in the background.
Mike Higgins was recently promoted to a full professor of anesthesiology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, Department of Anesthesiology. This is a very high honor and one that’s only bestowed upon very few anesthesiologists during their careers. Way to go, Mike, and our sincerest congratulations on this tremendous accomplishment.
In February for Children’s Dental Health Month, Maria Fournier’s assistant, Julie, (a future hygienist) dressed up as the Tooth Fairy for her son’s school. They gave an informative presentation to the Pre-K3, Pre-K4 and kindergarten students. Everyone was so impressed that they did a command performance for the first and second graders. Maria said, “It is always a pleasure informing the children about proper oral hygiene, especially when my son is in the audience!”
