Ode to a Mentor

Your Real Champion® – Ode to a Mentor

Dr. Franz Goldstein lost his entire family in war-torn Germany and came to America alone in 1947.  Grateful for his new start, he devoted his life to the art of healing and distinguished himself as a world class gastroenterologist and a highly respected expert in inflammatory bowel disease.  He was admired by patients and colleagues alike as brilliant and refined, but most importantly… he was humble.

Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
