In the youngest elected president’s inaugural speech, President John F. Kennedy exhorted his fellow citizens to, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” he was referring to us providing service, even if it entailed sacrifice and selflessness. And on this, the 80th Anniversary of D-Day, what better way to celebrate than to share a bit about the service that a rising star in Preventive Medicine is providing to the specialty.
