What’s It Take To Go From Mechanic To Physician At 51? Patience, An Ohio Doctor Says
Carl Allamby’s professional trajectory could be reduced to the plot of a feel-good movie. Skimming over the details, his is a story of a once-poor boy from the wrong side of Cleveland, who went from fixing cars to fixing people, from mechanic to medical doctor. But the more accurate truth is that in this case, Allamby’s social and economic mobility ~ the kind that embodies the so-called American Dream ~ was of the tortoise vs. hare variety; it stretched out over decades.

Mark your calendars for these events and see the Stevenson Calendar for details on these and future programs.
