Dec 02, 2015

“You concentrate on things you can control and you don’t worry about the other stuff.”At age 31 and after more than a decade in the Navy as an Explosive Ordinance Device Technician, Dean befriended a physician that opened his eyes to the world of medicine and made him take a step back and think. We talk about what his job entailed in the Navy, what it was that intrigued him about medicine, how to study chemistry at 3am, and finally, his method of dealing with anxiety provoking moments.
