Today, Sidney Colaco was the guest speaker at our Fort Bragg Rotary Club. Sidney is a bright engaging young man who has been working at our hospital as a student intern for the past 3 1/2 weeks. Sidney is a 2nd year graduate school student at the University of Southern California (USC). It has been a pleasure to have him working at our hospital this summer. It always seems like we learn as much, or more, from our students than they learn from us.
Today, Sidney spoke about the field of Engineering Management, the applications that it has for hospital operations (including the work that he has been doing at our hospital during the past month) and he spoke about his home country, India. He made a very good impression on our Rotary Club. Members saw the value of his work, and how it could be used to help other businesses and government. I have no doubt that Sidney has a very bright future ahead of him. I truly hope that I will be able to keep in touch with him as he completes his education and embarks on a very exciting career.
