I Thought I Would Never Run Again
A few years ago, I was standing in Central Park admiring the fall leaves. It was one of those lyrical moments of oneness with nature. Until our dog, whose leash I was holding, decided that she would do her own communing with nature by chasing yet another squirrel. She went right, my right knee went left, and then it snapped. She didn’t catch the squirrel. I limped home.
Congratulations to the Global Mental Health Programs' Research Assistant, Nicole Khauli, who will start her PhD in Clinical Psychology this fall at Palo Alto University, and former intern Janelle Gore, who will start her master's degree this fall at Emory Rollins School of Public Health.
