September 2, 2015 – One year ago today came the answer to a question RCAM got asked probably daily for the prior two years: When is Dr. Gessner going to be back?
On July 9, 2012, Dr. Rick Gessner, his wife and their 3 children began a two year medical mission. Dr. Gessner treated a wide range of pediatric medical conditions at a hospital in Kijabe, Kenya. RCAM got Dr. Gessner back to our Brier Creek office on September 2, 2014. We were (and still are) very proud of what he and his family accomplished there. It was very exciting for the RCAM family to have them back home in Raleigh.
I asked Rick to comment on the milestone and this is what he had to say:
“I have really enjoyed being back in Raleigh, seeing old patients, and meeting many new ones this year. Our family has enjoyed the warm welcome home and we look forward to being here for many years to come…although we want to sneak back to Kenya for some visits from time to time!”
