October was an incredibly busy month for Dr. Jack and the Town of Jerome as well. Mid-month, Kaleidoscope Week brought together a gathering of artists, students and locals to celebrate  the 50th anniversary of Woodstock for a celebration at Spook Hall to raise money for Jerome’s Humane Society.

The next day, Dr. Jack and Jamie participated in a kaleidoscope making class taught by Steve Hopkins, and Randy and Shelly Knapp. Dr. Jack succeeded in making his first Kaleidoscope. The gathering of artists, students and locals culminated with the Humane Society (JHS) fundraiser Brunch that brought hundreds of people to the beautiful outdoor event to celebrate, enjoy great food and raise money for the JHS. 

After all of the activities in Jerome, Dr. Jack drove to ATSU to teach a Public Health class with Dean, Dr. Don Altman, for the ATSU Physician Assistant students. After Dean Altman discussed basic public health, Dr. Jack focused on the skills needed to be a successful health care provider in the emerging healthcare system. These included, integrity, service and leadership. It’s always a pleasure for Dr. Jack to visit the campus.

It was an incredible event that literally completely filled Spook Hall. It was a night filled with amazing costumes and music by the Naughty Bits.

The month wound down with Dr. Jack participating in the AZ Public Health Association annual meeting. It was another opportunity for him to visit with many old friends and colleagues – sharing breakfast and catching up with Dr. Bob England was a special treat. Lastly, Dr. Jack made a quick visit to California to visit with more friends and colleagues at Bien Air in Irvine. It was a wonderful opportunity to learn about their innovative products.
