This is a video that talks about the doctors I work with. Vickie Vandervort is a developmental optometrist, optometrists who work mostly with children whose vision interferes with their ability to read, learn, comprehend, and even to pay attention. This is from a TED meeting in her home town, Lincoln, NE.
She is one of the most beautiful human beings I've ever known. She and her husband had a child 21 years ago with only the rudiments of his brain developed. Doctors wanted to let the infant die, so she fired them. The boy is still an infant, but a very talal one. She and her husband care for him and take him places, something he clearly enjoys. It's not a burdern for the couple, and since they're both doctors, their income is sufficient. And despite all this, she is always conscious of others. We all went out to dinner one night and her son came along. When we were paying the bill, a little boy can in and was pretty shocked by her son, and with zero fuss, she leaned down and explained to the youngster that this is her child and that he had problems being born, and that he didn't have to worry because it wasn't catching. The little boy relaxed, the fear went away. What a great human being. And most of the doctors I work with are the same kind of loving and thoroughly decent people you would ever get to meet.
Much of the way she presents is from what we teach about communication. She's a little nervous because she isn't one to seek the limelight.
Wonder why I really don't want to retire and end my friendship with people of that caliber? https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=9pHvS7Mr_l8
