Tri 4 Schools (Isthmus)

If you're not already familiar with Tri 4 Schools, I encourage you to do so! It is an amazing organization, spearheaded by an even more amazing woman, that puts money back into local schools to go towards health and fitness education costs, something that gets put on the back burner much more than it should.

Tri 4 Schools hosts four annual events each spring through fall that are directed at kids ages 3 to 15, including a mud run and the upcoming Middleton Kids Triathlon. Yes, a kids' triathlon!

My oldest has participated in both the Waunakee Kids Triathlon and this year's Verona Mud Run, both put on by Tri 4 Schools. The races were well-run, extremely kid friendly and just plain fun!

Learn more about the organization, its founder and the runs here.

Top Docs Profiles (Madison Magazine)

I know it's been a long, long time, but I did want to get the word out about two articles I recently had published in Madison Magazine. I was privileged to be a part of their bi-annual Top Docs issue and write profiles on two very prestigious, hard-working doctors in the Madison area.

The first profile is on Dr. Azita Hamedani, who has given a complete makeover to the Emergency Medicine program at UW Hospital, creating a strong teaching program in partnership with the university. Read more about her and her work here.

The second profile is on Dr. Dipesh Navsaria, a pediatrician who has put his full dedication into the state's Reach Out and Read program, working tirelessly to ensure children are given early access and exposure to literacy. Read more about his work here.
