This Visiting Professorship was partially made possible by this blog. One of our regular commenters, Jeff L. Tanji, M.D., Associate Physician and Co-director of the UCDavis Sports Medicine Program, started reading this blog several months ago and we began communicating beyond the bounds of this blog.
We discovered several shared beliefs in healthcare and education and we will explore those thoughts in person during my visit.
Dr. Tanji posts insightful comments here under the codename “Jeff” and he has no blog to identify him so, in the interest of full disclosure, here is his beautiful face for international memorization:
I have also taken the liberty of using that delightful image to create the perfect 80×80 online Gravatar for Dr. Tanji if he chooses to join us in that visual endeavor. Please meet Mini-Tanji:
While our initial visit is brief, we believe there are several long term research and writing projects we can help create that will preserve and protect the dreams of young athletes. The anticipation and the excitement of this new alliance, created virtually, but touchstone real in every way, is a reckoning the world shall not soon forget!
I plan to check in here to reply to comments while I’m in California. WordPress is set to automatically publish a new post I wrote for you every day no matter what happens so you can carry on without me even though I’m always with you.
