Dr. Fung's Charming message to Terry Mangan


I remember February 1984 like it was yesterday, in the basement of Falk Clinic, waiting for my meeting with Dr. Starzl that would bring me to start working as a Clinical Research Fellow in July 1984. You made me feel welcome and relaxed until Dr. Starzl came in, and you have been taking care of me since, for more than 30 years. I thank you so much for everything that you have done for Dr. Starzl, for me, and all the fellows that have trained under him. It was go great to see you yesterday!

John Fung, MD, Ph.D.
