    L E T T E R F R O M T H E D I R E C T O R

    Dear Alumni,IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT I inform you that Upstate Medical Alumni Association President, Zella Small, MD 77, passed away on Thursday, December 1. Born on May 26, 1951, Dr. Small received her BA from SUNY Albany and went on to earn her medical degree here at Upstate in 1977. After completing her residency in radiology at Upstate, she joined Crouse Radiology Associates and served as medical director of the Medical Imaging Center in East Syracuse. She held a faculty appointment of clinical assistant professor at Upstate Medical University. Dr. Small was predeceased by her father, Jake, and youngest sister, Jeanne Fish. She is survived by her mother, Elizabeth Small, husband, David Kennedy, son Derek, daughter Danielle and five siblings. Dr. Smalls life and many accomplishments as a mother, wife, sister, doctor and friend were celebrated at a beautiful service on December 6, 2011.

    As many of you know, Dr. Small was a very caring physician and dynamic leader in our community. Her professional accomplishments were many, but her personal impact on those that knew her was immense, even while dealing with illness over many years. She had very high values and a strong sense of duty to her family and profession. According to her husband, David, Zella lived by high standards expecting her children to always behave and perform at a certain level. She had similar expectations of her co-workers. However, if you fell short, she always provided the resources needed to improve. And while her love was a tough love, it was everlasting.

    I will forever remember Dr. Smalls thoughtful demeanor and infectious laugh. No matter how serious a situation was, she had an uncanny ability to put people at ease, which is a quality that came easy to her. As president of the Alumni Association, she deeply cared for her medical school and all that it stood for as a physician.

    Dr. Small was the same way with her practice and patients. She was

    very dedicated to her work and highly respected within our greater community. She was also very proud of her childrens achievements and rightfully so. She spoke glowingly of Danielle and Derek with that gleaming smile on her face. Derek has just completed his third year of medical school at Yale and Danielle is a producer with CNBC Business News. I am sure she is looking over them now, just as she always has.

    Bruce Simmons, MD 79, friend and col-league of Dr. Small shared the following reflection: Zella and I met as first-year medical students in 1973. Even then she made an immediate impression with her wonderful personality. Over the years she consistently demonstrated qualities of kindness, generosity, and friendship. She had high principles, particularly regarding her family and her profession, but she was a down to earth person, and would more easily find humor, rather than dismay, in lifes situations.

    On behalf of the Alumni Association, we extend our deepest sympathies to Dr. Smalls family. Her memory will always be with us, and we know that her legacy will continue through her children. We will miss Dr. Small dearly, but are so grateful for having known her through the years, for her leadership and commitment and also her sense of humor. We say goodbye for now, but certainly not forever. Rest in Peace, Dr. Small.

    With great sadness, but fond memories,

    Vince Kuss, Executive Director

    Upstate Partners with Private Developer on Community Project

    A GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY was held on December 1 for the redevelopment of 10 acres of Kennedy Square, a collaboration between Upstate Medical University and COR Development Company.

    Kennedy Square is located north of Upstates campus, bordered by E. Fayette Street on the south, Forman Avenue on the west, E. Water Street to the north and S. Crouse Avenue to the east. The development project involves 10 acres of land adjacent to the Central New York Biotechnology Research Center

    (CNYBRC), a $22 million project between Upstate and the State University College of Environmental Science and Forestry that is currently under construction.

    Upstate officials say the site will likely be a mix of residential, retail, office, and educational space. An office complex planned for the site will allow Upstate to reduce significantly the amount of space it leases for various offices.

    We are pleased to partner with COR Development Company on this transformative project for Syracuse, says Upstate President David R. Smith, MD. This publicprivate partnership will showcase how working together we can create new opportunities for economic development.

    As part of the redevelopment, Kennedy Square will be renamed Loguens Crossing in a tribute to the Loguen family, who lived nearby on E. Genesee Street. Sarah Loguen became one of the first AfricanAmerican women physicians in the United States, earning her medical degree in 1876 from what is now Upstate Medical University.

    WHITE COAT CEREMONY. Medical students marked the beginning of their educa-tional journeys by receiving the traditional white coat in a ceremony at the OnCenter on August 24th. In addition to receiving their coats, students heard from faculty and upperclassmen about building the bonds of physician-patient relation-ships and offering compas-sionate care. Paula Ortiz is congratulated by President David Smith, MD. Many thanks to the Onondaga County Medical Society for sponsoring the lovely recep-tion after the ceremony.

    Lieutenant Governor Robert Duffy announces the project at a press conference.

    PROMOTING HEALTHY TEENS. Upstate pediatrician Robert Michael Cavanaugh, Jr. MD, believes most pediatricians are attracted to the specialty because they want to take care of babies. He champions the pediatricians who focus on adoles-cent medicine and hopes his new book, Dying to be Perfect: How Teens Can Stay Happy, Healthy and Alive will help raise aware-ness of the sub-specialty. Dr. Cavanaugh has been Upstates director of adolescent medicine since 1981.

    Pediatrician Honored for Long CareerONE OF CENTRAL New Yorks longest serving pediatricians, Frederick Roberts, MD 42, was honored with a retirement ceremony at Upstate Medical Universitys Pediatric and Adolescent Clinic in August.

    Dr. Roberts estimates he has cared for more than 300,000 children in his more than 60year career in medicine, as well as training countless medical students in pediatric medicine. He has been honored numerous times for his care of area children, including a Post- Standard Achievement Award in 1999 in recognition of his selfless service to the

    community. He opened an outpatient clinic for poor children in 1995 and helped raise funds for the Upstate Golisano Childrens Hospital, directing proceeds from the sale of his second book, Children Courageous and Their Families, to the fundraising campaign.

    College of Medicine Celebrates 75th Anniversary of Cornerstone LayingON SEPTEMBER 29, 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt laid the cornerstone of the Upstate College of Medicine building. On that chilly day, President Roosevelt spoke of the need to prepare a large number of welltrained doctors and nurses and congratulated Dean Weiskotten, the faculty, and medical students on the new buildings usefulness to future generations.

    In September, the Upstate Medical University celebrated the 75th anniversary of the cornerstone laying with a ceremony in the Weiskotten Courtyard, unveiling both a historic marker and a painting of President Roosevelt.

    The cornerstone laying was Roosevelts last visit to Syracuse. More than 25,000 people lined the streets to view his motorcade. One of those was 13yearold Murray Grossman, MD 45.

    The schools were closed because of the presidents visit, so there were lots of children there. The crowd was electrifying. I remember climbing up on something to get a better view. I was fortunate to see President Roosevelt drive up and do his dedication ceremony. It was something I shall never forget, says Dr. Grossman, who would go on to earn his medical degree from Upstate as well as serve as professor of medicine for many years.

    Family Medicine Chair Named

    John Epling, MD, MSEd, has been named chair of the Department of

    Family Medicine. He succeeds Andrea Manyon, MD, who accepted a position at the University of Buffalo. Epling joined Upstate in 1999 and most recently served as vice chair of the department. He co-directs Upstates Preventive Medicine Program, the Studying, Acting, Learning and Teaching Network (SALT-Net, the departments practice-based research network), and serves as medical director of the Central New York Region

    Office of the New York state Area Health Education Consortium (AHEC). He holds joint appointments as asso-ciate professor in the departments of Family Medicine and Public Health and Preventive Medicine. His research focus is evidence-based medicine, quality improvement and human performance technology.

    Upstate alumnus Murray Grossman, MD 45, left, and Dan Hurley, assistant vice president for government and community relations, unveil a historical marker that highlights President Franklin D. Roosevelts role in laying the cornerstone of what is now Weiskotten Hall, home of Upstate Medical Universitys College of Medicine. Grossman attended the cornerstone ceremony 75 years ago, on Sept, 29, 1936.

    Dr. Sarahs Dominican Republic: 125+ Years LaterTHE FIRST WOMAN doctor in the Dominican Republic was Sarah Loguen, MD, class of 1876. Recently, photographer Susan Kahn visited Puerto Plata, the Dominican town where Dr. Loguen lived and worked from 1884 to 1897, and looked for signs of Dr. Loguen and her family.

    More than 125 years later, Loguens presence is evident. The street where she and her husband lived and worked is a medical district with doctors offices and pharmacies. Her familys pharmacy and doctors office/home are still standing, although in need of repair. Today, the colorful streets and beautiful town center of Puerto Plata look much the same as they did in 1890, as can be seen in Loguens photograph albums in the Goins Collection at Howard University. The Sociedad Cultural Renovacion, a library and historic center in Puerto Plata, likely has some of their family and business records.

    How did Loguen get from Syracuse, New York, to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic? By ship, after her 1884 marriage to Charles Fraser, a Dominican pharmacist she met through Frederick Douglass. (Frasers wedding gifts to Loguen were surgical tools and a horse so that she could make house calls in the Dominican countryside.) In Puerto Plata, the couple owned a banana plantation in addition to a pharmacy, and a home with her doctors office. They had a daughter, Gregoria, who was born in 1885.

    Prior to living and working in the Dominican Republic, Loguen earned her medical degree at Syracuses College of Medicine, becoming one of the nations first AfricanAmerican women physicians and the first to graduate from a coeducational medical school. Loguen interned in Philadelphia and Boston, and practiced medicine in Washington, DC. Several years after her husbands death in 1894, she and her daughter returned to Washington, DC, where LoguenFraser resumed her medical practice, and lived for the rest of her life.

    The College of Medicine welcomed back members of classes ending in 1 and 6

    Upstate Medical University alumni of the College of Medicine returned to campus to celebrate the 136th annual Reunion weekend, held September 23-24. As always, this wonderful weekend of learning, vis-iting, and recognition provided a great opportunity

    to rekindle the spirit of the medical school experience at Upstate while reaffirming alumni commitment to the profession and the institution.

    Reunion Weekend began on Friday, with a medical writing seminar and tours of the library, historical exhibits, and the Golisano Childrens Hospital. The Weiskotten Lecture featured a talk on Space Medicine given by Joseph M. Dervay, MD 84, who shared safety challenges of moon and exploration class missions as medical director of the Space Shuttle and International Space Station. An awards ceremony honored out-standing alumni, class giving and participation, and student scholarship winners, followed by a wine and hors doeuvres reception and an all-class dinner party.

    On Saturday, alumni enjoyed the Deans Breakfast and Alumni Association Annual Meeting, a family luncheon at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo, and individual class dinners that evening.

    If its been a while since youve been back, plan to join us in 2012 for our 137thth Reunion Weekend. Place it on your calendar for September 21-22, 2012. We hope to see you there!

    ReunionThis was the best delivery

    of hospitality, good food,

    and generally allaround

    attention to detail from the Alumni

    Office that I can remember.

    All of my classmates

    had a really nice time.

    Peter Greenwald, MD, DrPH Class of 1961

    Peter Greenwald, MD, DrPH is Associate Director for Prevention, Office of the Director, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). In this position he assesses cancer prevention and early detection research all across the NCI. His major

    research interests include basic and preclinical studies through firstinhuman to phase III clinical trials, nutritional science, biomarker discovery and validation, biometry, and systems approaches to cancer prevention. In March 2011, he retired as Director of the NCI Division of Cancer Prevention, which he established and led for 30 years, to take this new position. When he retired, he was Assistant Surgeon General (Rear Admiral) in the U.S. Public Health Service.

    Following medical residency at Boston City Hospital, Dr. Greenwald earned

    master and doctoral degrees in epidemiology at the Harvard

    School of Public Health. From Harvard, he joined the New York State Department of Health in Albany, first as Director of Cancer Control, then as head of the Epidemi

    ology Division. His work there included confirmation of vaginal

    cancer after maternal

    treatment with the synthetic estrogen, DES, studies of a Hodgkins Disease cluster among Albany High School students, and overseeing the Love Canal investigation of health effects of environmental contamination, conducted by a young physician under his general supervision.

    In 1981, Greenwald was recruited to establish what is now NCIs Division of Cancer Prevention. Complementing the analytical epidemiology research in place at NCI, he built a nationwide program of clinical and public health research and interventions to lower the incidence of cancer. In public health, he started the American Stop Smoking Intervention Triala broad collaborative effort for tobacco controland Five A Day for better health, aimed at improving eating behavior all across the United States. His division sponsored largescale clinical trials that have demonstrated about half of postmenopausal breast cancer and one quarter of prostate cancers are preventable, using drugs that have some side effects, but

    are low in toxicity. They provide an option for people at moderate to high risk of these cancers and establish that medical approaches to cancer prevention are possible. Under his leadership,

    other studies were aimed to learn how to lower risk of several different cancers, prevent adverse outcomes from therapy, and make clinical trials more efficient. Greenwald has received numerous awards and is author or coauthor of about 300 scientific papers.

    Dr. Greenwald is congratulated by President David Smith, MD, Zella Small, MD 77, and Steven Scheinman, MD.

    Molly Brewer, DVM, MD, MS Class of 1991

    Molly A. Brewer, DVM, MD, MS, is director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology, Director of the Womens Cancer Prevention Program, professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and associate director for

    academics at the University of Connecticut Carol and Ray Neag Cancer Center. She is also a research professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UConn Storrs and a professor in genetics in the Department of Molecular, Microbial and Structural Biology at the University of Connecticut Health Center. Dr. Brewer completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland and a fellowship in gynecologic oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Following her fellowship, she had a joint appointment with University of TexasHouston Medical School and MD Anderson Cancer Center and completed a Master of Science in Clinical Research Design and Statistical Analysis at the University of Michigan School of Public Health in Ann Arbor.

    Early in her career, Brewer began working with fluorescence and reflectance spectroscopy for the early detection of ovarian cancer with the biomedical engineers from the University of Texas at Austin. They published the first manuscripts on the use of optical imaging in evaluating the ovary, which served as the beginning of a long collaboration with biomedical engineers in the use of light outside of the visual spectrum for early detection of ovarian cancer. Based on this early work, she has expanded to using imaging to understand the biology of carcinogenesis. Dedicated to improving the quality of international healthcare, she regularly travels to China where she teaches advanced radical surgery to gynecologic surgeons.

    Brewer is active in medical student and resident teaching and was awarded the teaching award in 2010 by the fourthyear obstetrics and gynecology residents. She has a laboratory where she works on ovarian cancer stem cells with PhD and post

    doctoral students, residents and medical students. Her current funded research projects include noninvasive photoacoustic ovarian imaging; and using second harmonic generation imaging to understand changes in the extracellular matrix that accompany cancer.

    Prior to earning her medical degree, Brewer was trained as a DVM and practiced for five years in a largeanimal practice and four years in a smallanimal practice. She became frustrated with the lack of ability to fully treat her patients because of the economic limitations of veterinary medicine and now uses her veterinary degree in the development of animal models in ovarian cancer, working with rodents, primates, and large animals.

    Dr. Brewer is congratulated by Steven Scheinman, MD, Zella Small, MD 77, and President David Smith, MD.

    Patricia J. Numann, MD 65, FACS, the Lloyd S. Rogers Professor of Surgery Emeritus, SUNY Distinguished Service Professor, and SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus, added president of the American College of Surgeons to a long list of career accomplishments when she was installed as the 92nd president of the organization on October 23

    during the opening of its Clinical Congress in San Francisco.

    We all became physiciansnot only because of our interest in sciencebut also because of our commitment to humanity, Dr. Numann told the Colleges 1,591 Initiates during the Convocation ceremony. Each of us is a steward of our profession by the example we set in our personal and professional behavior. In this time of health care reform we must be ever more vigilant in protecting our patients and our profession.

    Her own professional behavior has been no less then exemplary, serving as a role model for generations of surgeons.

    Numann ardently devoted her entire professional life to SUNY Upstate Medical University. After earning her medical degree in 1965, she com

    pleted a combined internship in medicine and surgery and then trained as a general surgery resident. After residency, she was appointed assistant professor of surgery (197075), and then rose through the academic ranks at Upstate, serving as associate professor of surgery (197589); associate dean of the college of medicine (197884); associate dean of the college of medicine clinical affairs (198994); professor of surgery (19892007); medical director of University Hospital (19972007); and Lloyd S. Rogers Professor of Surgery (200007).

    Throughout her surgical career, Numanns clinical and scientific interests have focused on breast disease and thyroid and parathyroid disease, a commitment reflected in the 2007 establishment of the Patricia J. Numann Breast & Endocrine Surgery Center at Upstate. She received grants and served as principal investigator or coinvestigator of several studies researching various aspects of breast and endocrine disease and has also served as an author or coauthor of several chapters in surgical textbooks as well as numerous journal articles and abstracts, many of which focus on breast and parathyroid disease. She has served on the editorial boards of several prestigious medical and surgical

    P A T R I C I A J . N U M A N N , M D 6 5




    journals including the Journal of the American Medi-cal Association, World Journal of Surgery, and Journal of Surgical Research.

    Known as an outstanding and motivating educator, Numann received both the Distinguished Teacher Award and Presidents Award for Excellence in Teaching from Upstate, where the graduating medical students regularly asked her to serve as faculty marshal or to deliver the Oath of Hippocrates during commencement.

    Numann became a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS) in 1974 and has actively contributed to the work of the College for many years. Since 2003, she has been Director of the ACS Fundamentals of Surgery Curriculum. In 2006, the ACS recognized Numann for her invaluable service contributions by naming her the recipient of its Distinguished Service Award, the Colleges highest honor.

    In addition to service to the ACS, Numann has been an active leader and member of several national surgical and medical organizations. She was the first woman to serve as chair of the esteemed American Board of Surgery (19942002) and was vice president of the American Associa

    tion of Endocrine Surgeons (1992). She was one of the founding members and president (198586) of the Association for Surgical Education and founded the Association for Women Surgeons in 1982, later serving as its president (198687).

    The American College of Surgeons is a scientific and educational organization with more than 77,000 members and is the largest organization of surgeons in the world. The election of Pat Numann as president is among the highest honors any academic surgeon can receive, says Robert Cooney, MD, chair of the Upstate Department of Surgery. All of us are proud of Pats many professional accomplishments and honored to have her as an alumnus of our medical school and surgical residency program.

    Health care delivery is a competitive business, particularly in an era of shortened inpatient hospital stays and shifting reimbursement. But in Syracuse, decisions made

    on economic practicalities have resulted in a health care system that provides high quality care to a broad geographic region and also is a driving element of the economy.

    After more than a year of intense planning, Upstate Medical University acquired Community General Hospital on July 7, 2011, expanding Upstates patient care and teaching across the city.

    This is a momentous day for Central New York, and especially for patients and the future of healthcare in our region, said David R. Smith, MD, president of Upstate Medical University. As we unite with Community General Hospital, we build a larger foundation to serve the community and the state, by providing outstanding care, educating the healthcare professionals of tomorrow, strengthening our research and fueling sustainable economic growth. Our commitment to this region cannot be overstated.

    The acquisition is widely viewed as a winwin for both institutions. University Hospital had long operated at capacity

    and needed more beds while Community General faced closure or bankruptcy because of declining patient volume and financial losses. The institutions will operate as one hospital with two campuses, making Upstate, long Syracuses thirdlargest hospital, the biggest with 715 licensed beds.

    Upstate and Community are now one hospital, with one workforce and one medical staff serving the Central New York community on two campuses, said John McCabe, MD 79, chief executive officer at University Hospital, who led the yearlong discussions between Upstate and Community. McCabe says the acquisition unites Community General and Upstate in the common mission

    of providing quality care to patients all across the region. We have ushered in a new era of medical care in Central New York that will enhance access to care and provide patients with a broader range of medical services, he says.

    Both campuses now function under Upstates operating certificate. Community General Hospital was renamed Upstate University Hospital at Community General.

    We wanted to respect the significant history and tradition of Community as well as respect the physicians who send their patients to Community, McCabe said. Upstate University Hospital at Community General signifies a new direction, but pays homage to this vital healthcare institution that has served the western suburbs.

    Under the acquisition plan, Upstate has acquired nearly all of CGHs assets and property as well as assumed a percentage of CGHs debt.

    The acquisition saves approximately 900 healthcare jobs in Central New York and provides needed space for Upstate to continue to grow its operations.

    McCabe says Upstate has plans to renovate and refurbish parts of the facility to make way for additional services that will complement University Hospitals downtown location, while addressing patient needs on the west side of Syra

    ROOMGROWTO Upstate Medical Universitys acquisition of Community General Hospital expands Upstates patient care and teaching across the city while preserving more than 900 jobs.




    cuse. A pediatric urgent care center and additional beds for many indemand adult services are among the options Upstate will explore for the westcampus location. Additionally, the west campus provides Upstate Medical Universitys academic programs with a community hospitalbased setting to implement an array of medical education programs.

    Upstates procurement of Community General brings to a close more than a decade of merger talks between various Syracuse hospitals. While there had long been speculation about a merger between University and Crouse Hospitals, more recently, Crouse and Community General had been in negotiation to merge. When that unraveled we stepped in and changed the course of the discussion, says McCabe.

    Former Community General Hospital President Tom Quinn praised the acqui

    sition and says Community was fortunate to partner with Upstate.

    Upstate is an excellent organization, and it is wellpositioned for upcoming changes in health care, he says. The Upstate leadership team deserves much credit for their forward thinking and foresight. They deserve a lot of credit for the standup way they worked with Community Generals board, medical staff, employees, and volunteers throughout the process of due diligence and affiliation planning. Within Upstates healthcare system, Community General is better poised to meet future challenges and opportunities.

    Quinn, now senior vice president of Upstate University Hospital, calls seeing the acquisition through the capstone of a career. We know this has been the right thing to do in this town for years. Many hospitals, our own included, have tried to

    consolidate in other ways. Weve finally succeeded, he says.

    Meredith Price, former director of operations for Upstates College of Medicine who played a key role in the transition efforts, is Upstates new chief administrative officer at the Community General campus.

    The July acquisition has yielded a number of opportunities for both Upstate University Hospital campuses, says Price. The expansion of existing services and development of new clinical programs bring tremendous benefit to the community, with prospects for additional growth on the horizon. This is truly an exciting time for Upstate, and the Community General campus is the avenue by which many goals are becoming within its reach.

    New services Upstate is introducing at Community General include an after-hours urgent care center for children and an epilepsy monitoring unit.

    Dan Alexander, MD, Dave Cywinski, MD 00, and Tony Glosek during their summer 2011 bike trip.


    Physicians dont typically come out of the workingclass Buffalo neighborhood of Babcock. Decades ago, it was home to several large factories, including Buffalo China. Most residents have bluecollar jobs, in this tough, poor section of town, where it wasnt unusual to

    have your electricity or phone shut off. Pretty much everyone in the neigh

    borhood had someone in their family who was an alcoholic, a drug addict, or was on some form of public assistance, says David Cywinski, MD 00.

    Dr. Cywinski stayed out of trouble by spending most of his free time after school and on the weekends at the local Boys & Girls Club. Amidst the poverty, it was the one place he could always find solace, a good meal, and adults that served as positive role models.

    In 1986, David Cywinski, MD 00, embarked on a bicycle trip around the country with two lifelong friends. Twenty-five years later, they completed their journey, paying forward their good fortunes in the process.BY RENE GEARHART LEVY



    We were so poor on one hand but very rich in another, because we had the Boys Club, says Cywinski.

    In the summer of 1981, he and his friend Dan Alexander were 16 and looking for something to do, when they settled on a bike trip to Colorado, where Cywinski had lived when he was younger. I dont know what our parents were thinking, but they basically said, Just be back in time for school, he recalls.

    With $50 a piece in their pockets, the duo set off by themselves for Denver, riding approximately 100 miles a day and sleeping alternately in a tent, churches, Boys Clubs, and jail cells. Wherever we could find a place to stop, we slept. Cywinski says.

    It was a trip that would change both their lives. Dave and I were two poor kids without much, but when we did that tripriding 100 miles a day in the blistering heat through Kansasand we got to Colorado, we realized we could do anything we wanted in life, says Alexander.

    Cywinski caught a train home and Alexander a bus, keeping their promise to make it back in time for their junior year of high school to begin.

    That trip was the catalyst for the duo to take on an even longer trip five years later when they were 21. At the time, Cywinski was an EMT and a junior at Buffalo State College. Alexander was a Buffalo firefighter. They wanted to give back to the organization that had taught them life skills they didnt learn at home when they decided to bike the perimeter of the United States8,141 milesin 100 days to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club. This time they werent alone. Joining them was Tony Glosek, a 16yearold, who like them, had grown up in the Babcock Boys & Girls Club, and the clubs executive director, Bob Kurtz. In May 1986, they set off, accompanied by an RV driven by another childhood friend.

    I T WAS GRUELING, both physically and mentally. Physically, it was demanding. Mentally, it was really, really tough, Cywinski says. The first five days was a nightmare, echoes

    Glosek.Halfway through the trip, Bob Kurtz flew home

    to join his wife, whod just had a baby, and to focus on fundraising for the trip.

    Then tragedy struck at the 5,700mile mark in Seguin, Texas, when Cywinski and Glosek were hit by a pickup truck whose driver fell asleep at the wheel.

    Tony and I would often draft behind the RV, Cywinski recalls. Dan didnt like doing that so he was about a mile behind us.

    Dave and I were two poor kids without much, but when we did that tripriding 100 miles a day in the blistering heat through Kansasand we got to Colorado, we realized we could do anything we wanted in life. DAN ALEXANDER, MD

    Cywinski heard the squeal of breaks and turned around just in time to see Glosek get run over. The truck continued into Cywinski, propelling him against the rear of the RV, where he became pinned between the RV and its rearmounted spare tire. Emergency personnel had to peel off both the mangled truck and the spare tire to get to him.

    Cywinski got off easy with only a broken tibia and some nerve damage in his left foot. Glosek was far worse off, with compound fractures of his legs,

    a broken back, and jaw. Ultimately, he endured several surgeries and a yearandahalf of rehabilitation to learn to walk again.

    Although the trip was over for three of the riders, Alexander continued the final 2,500 miles on his own. It was important for me to finish, both for myself, for the Boys & Girls Club, and for Dave and Tony, says Alexander.

    T RUE TO HIS BLUE-COLLAR ORIGINS, Cywinski had taken a job as a welder out of high school. After setting himself on fire more than once, he found a free course to become an EMT. A friend told him he could volunteer for the ambulance corps at Buffalo State College, but hed have to be a student.

    I figured, what the heck, Ill register for school, says Cywinski.

    A biology major, Cywinski had a growing interest in medicine. I thought maybe Id like to be a doctor, but never in a million years would that come out of someones mouth from my neighborhood.

    Despite his interest and desire, Cywinski was ill prepared for college. He graduated, but without the grades for medical school, he became a paramedic and firefighter, working for 14 years in Fayetteville, New York. He also taught paramedics at Upstate Medical University.

    In 1993, Cywinski was looking for an opportunity to do some Christian relief work as a paramedic or EMT when he heard about an organization looking for people to teach paramedics in Bosnia. I was thinking of doing something for two

    weeks not two months, plus there was a war going on, he says of his immediate reaction.

    Then he saw a story on television about the war wounded in Bosnia and the suffering caused by lack of medical care. The report featured a little boy who had lost an eye. I knew right then that I was going, Cywinski says. Two weeks later he was on a plane.

    His experience in Bosnia fueled the paramedics latent desire to become a physician. When he returned home, he enrolled in a masters program at SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry to prove he had the academic chops to make it in medical school.

    Unlike most people who apply to 1015 schools, I only applied to one. I decided that if I couldnt get into Upstate, where I had a lot of community experience, I wasnt going to get in anywhere, he says.

    Fortunately, that wasnt a problem. Cywinski graduated from Upstate Medical Universitys College of Medicine in 2000, then took a dual residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of Rochester.

    Cywinskis odyssey is remarkable enough, but the story becomes even more amazing.

    Dan Alexander, who worked himself up to the rank of lieutenant in the Buffalo Fire Department, also became a doctor at the same time, earning his degree from SUNY Buffalo in 1999. He completed orthopedic training at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, specializing in orthopedic surgery.

    Cywinski was a fellow in pediatric critical care when his first child was born. The one thing Ive always wanted more than anything was to be a dad and I was never home, he says. I knew I needed to make a career shift.

    Today, the two are partners at the Finger Lakes Bone and Joint Center in Geneva, NY. Alexander specializes in general orthopedic surgery while Cywinski practices nonsurgical orthopedic medicine, managing patients with ailments such as back pain, arthritis, gout, osteoporosis, and sports injuries.

    Im working with my best friend from childhood and Im home every night with my family. Its worked out phenomenally, he says.

    W HILE CYWINSKI AND ALEXANDER escaped the tentacles of Babcock, Glosek wasnt so lucky. A talented baseball player, the accident ended his athletic career. Like many in the neighborhood, he succumbed to drugs and alcohol. The deaths of his brother, Mike, and of Bob Kurtz, his fatherfigure from the Boys Club, sent him into a tailspin that continued for years.

    Nearly two years ago, Cywinski and Alexander got word that Glosek was in desperate shape.

    We put in an enormous number of miles before the trip, much more so than with the initial trip. At 21 and 16 we had the hubris of youth on our side. Not so much at 47.

    Alexander went to Buffalo and brought him back to Canandaigua, where he and Cywinski both live with their families.

    He weighed 250 pounds and was in horrific shape, Cywinski says.

    With Cywinski and Alexanders support, Glosek began rehabbing his life, physically, mentally, and spiritually. He worked in the billing department of their office, lost 80 pounds, and got into the best physical shape of his life.

    He was working out in Alexanders pool when the idea first hit. I jumped out and said, you know, next summer marks 25 years. Lets finish the trip, Glosek recalls.

    Initially, Cywinski was reluctant. I had no burning desire to finish the trip, he says. Ive got a lovely wife, and two adorable girls and I just didnt want to be away that long.

    But once the concept was hatched to try and raise money, Cywinski got excited.

    The ambitious goal was to raise $2.5 million to build a new community center and athletic field in their old neighborhood, as well as donate to the Boys & Girls Club of Geneva. The Finger Lakes Bone and Joint Center donated $250,000 to jump start the effort.

    They bought spinning bikes and began training, moving their cycling outdoors once the weather permitted. We put in an enormous number of miles before the trip, much more so than with the initial trip, says Cywinski. At 21 and 16 we had the hubris of youth on our side. Not so much at 47.

    That was the genesis of last summers Bike Trip for Kids. On the 25th anniversary of their original

    trip, the three men set out to finish the final 2,500 miles of their original journey from where the accident happened in Segiun, Texas, back to Buffalo, New York.

    Appropriately, they began the trip at the Guadalupe Regional Medical Center, where Glosek and Cywinski were treated in 1986. They rode an average of 115 miles a day for 23 days, with an additional two days off, making their way through

    Cywinski with the mascot of the Greensboro Grasshoppers in North Carolina.

    Texas, across the South, and up through Pennsylvania and New York, ending up in Buffalo on August 22, the same exact day they were scheduled to finish 25 years earlier.

    The two days off were not for rest but for Alexander and Cywinski to fly home and see patients. Were the only two physicians in a practice and took off 25 days. We flew home on two Sunday nights, spent all Monday working and then flew back to where wed stopped on Tuesday morning, he explains.

    Because of the intense training, or perhaps because this time around they were sleeping in hotels, Cywinski says the trip was much easier than anticipated.

    And in addition to the successful journey, he was able to check an item off his personal bucket list when he rode his bike through midtown Manhattan at rush hour. I used to see bike messengers whiz by and think that looked like fun and I finally got my chance to do it myself, he says.

    NOT MUCH HAS CHANGED IN BABCOCK since Cywinski, Alexander, and Glosek grew up there. Its not a neighborhood where progress and good things typically come calling.

    That is until the new Seneca Babcock Community Center and athletic field opens for use, hopefully by 2013. Thats ultimately what the bike trip was about.

    Its really about paying forward the things that were given to us as kids, says Cywinski, who is still actively fundraising for the project.

    Id love to hear a story 25 years from now that two of these kids who grow up to become physicians or lawyers or engineers because of the benefits they received at this center.
