Hear a doctor-soldier tell his remarkable story on Oct. 24
Jon Kerstetter, MD, MFA, has led a singular life crossing geographic boundaries, identities, and limitations. His story began in poverty on the Oneida Reservation in Wisconsin. He became a husband and father; an emergency medicine physician; and a U.S. Army combat physician and flight surgeon serving in Rwanda, Kosovo, Bosnia and three combat tours in Iraq. Then came a crossing of a different kind: doctor to patient, after Dr. Kerstetter suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a stroke that caused serious cognitive and physical disabilities.
Dr. Kerstetter recounts these experiences in his memoir “Crossings: A Doctor-Soldier’s Story.”
Hear from Dr. Kerstetter on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018, at the annual Military Health Institute Distinguished Lecture. A 6:00 p.m. reception will be followed by a 7:00-8:00 p.m. presentation in the Holly Auditorium. The event is free and open to all. Please email MHI@uthscsa.edu to register.
