By Bill Madigan, AVID Staff Developer
Recently, as I walked down the hall at UCSD Medical Center troubling over my Achilles tendon, a doctor walked out of a door near me, clad in his blue and green surgeon’s outfit. He strode confidently by me. As he did, he glanced at my AVID staff shirt. Gesturing intensely, he pointed at his chest and heartily declared, “I was in AVID…I was in AVID!!!” Sharing wide smiles, we faced each other for a moment, and then he continued on his way. I stood stunned. His grin and passion lit me up.
