Good Morning:

Are you a fan of the Yankees? How about someone who saved the life of a drowning man? Would you like to meet a renowned cardiologist who returned from the national stage to practice in his hometown?

Last week we celebrated the 170th anniversary of the Medical College of Louisiana, the entity that would eventually give rise to Tulane University Health Sciences Center.

Besides giving us the opportunity to honor those whose research and care have saved countless lives throughout our city and world, the celebration also provided a launching point for the upcoming "Promise and Distinction: The Campaign for Tulane University."

Now back to my original questions. If you answered "yes" to any of them, you will enjoy the 90-second movie linked below. It features one of the truly exceptional heroes of the 170th anniversary, a man who epitomizes the words "promise" and "distinction."

The movie is available in three formats so if one doesn't play for you, you can try a different link:
