CDS Meetings & Events
Send it to Michelle Jennings or Michael Santucci. Next deadline: April 14 for the May/June issue of the CDS Review.
With the onset of winter Kamal Vibhakar decided to vacation with his family in St. Maarten. It was just too cold in Chicago. He wanted us to notice his deep tan. Good job, Kamal! The islands have treated you well.
Ray Domico caught the travel bug, too. He went to the west coast, visiting the San Francisco area and Yosemite National Park.
Michelle Jennings had a busy fall. She travelled to Punta Cana for a week of sun and relaxation. Then Michelle went to southern Illinois (not as luxurious sounding as Punta Cana) for a girls weekend. The highlights were a Tunnel Hill 10-mile run on a trail that used to be a railroad track. She also visited the local wineries.
Barb and Mike Santucci spent a week in October on a mission trip in rural Jamaica. Mike took seven students from UIC, along with his son-in law and daughter, Chad and Beth Pfohl, and their two children, Charlie and Rainie. They treated more than 200 patients, performing 450 extractions and 60 restorations. The Santuccis make this a yearly trip.
Grace and Rick Battistoni toured Tuscany this fall with friends. They sampled wines and visited the Battistoni store in Rome which is a high-end clothing store. Believe it or not, having the same name did not get him the family discount. Oh well.
They participated in the Out of the Darkness walk along the lakeshore this last October, with funds raised by more than 3,000 participants for suicide prevention. The walk is done to raise awareness about resources available for relief from depression and other causes of suicide.
To cap off the month, Rick went on a hunting trip to South Dakota with a group of doctors. This is the seventh year they have taken this trip together, and each year is more fun than the previous.
Eva Egolf successively defended her PhD dissertation at New York University. Her parents, Dennis and Becky Egolf, are immensely proud.
