Teens Shadow UC Doc for a Day
Published February 2006
Shadowing a UC doctor for just one day may have changed the career paths of two Dayton, Ohio, teenagers. Blake and Grant Eilers, winners of "A Day with a Neurosurgeon," an auction item at last summer's Sunflower Revolution benefit for Parkinson's disease research, spent a day in January shadowing John Tew, MD, professor and medical director at The Neuroscience Institute at UC and University Hospital.
Grant, 18, says that his visit with Dr. Tew was so positive that it has reaffirmed his decision to become a doctor. His brother, Blake, a 19-year-old former patient of Dr. Tew, was planning on studying political science in college until he spent the day with his former doctor. He now says that he may reconsider his previous decision and opt for a premed major instead.
The Eilers brothers also met with UC neurosurgeon Andrew Ringer, MD, Mayfield Clinic nurse Nancy McMahon, Mayfield Clinic nurse practitioners Tara Orgon-Stamper and Patricia Haeberle and art director Tonya Hines.
