“Go By Boat” by Chuck Radis @Community Room
August 22, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
Join Island resident, Dr. Chuck Radis, for a talk and slide-show about his years as the physician for the Peaks Island Health Center and his house calls on the islands of Casco Bay. Dr. Radis has written a book on these experiences, Go By Boat, which can be described as Doc Martin meets All Creatures Great and Small, in this uniquely American true tale about an island physician off the coast of Maine.
In a career which spans island medicine to rheumatology, from public health work in a UN refugee settlement to advocacy for Medicare for all, Dr. Radis’ writings focus on the importance of empathy and kindness in patient care.
This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Peaks Island Library.
