HERE'S WHOSE MUG . . .
The Spring 2011 Whose Mug? challenge elicited responses from faculty, housestaff alumni, TDI graduates, and from MD alums spanning the classes of 1975 to 2008. None had any trouble recognizing one or both of our subjects: Dr. Paul Manganiello, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology (left), and Dr. Peter Mason, Assistant Professor of Community and Family Medicine.
“Paul continues in active practice at DHMC as a fertility expert,” wrote Professor of Surgery John Sutton. “As a testament to his care, he was once again named one of the state’s “Top Docs” in New Hampshire Magazine’s annual poll of physicians. Peter has been the driving force for family medicine and primary care at Alice Peck Day Hospital for years and is still actively practicing. Both have given incredibly good care to the residents of the Upper Valley for years.”
On a more personal note, one respondent shared that, “Paul assisted me at my son's delivery, and Peter Mason wears a special tie, I believe, when he does vasectomies.”
Two respondents noted the pair’s involvement in the Good Neighbor Clinic, where this photo was taken. “This is my good friend Dr. Paul Manganiello (with his arms folded) and Dr. Peter Mason (wearing a tie), probably at the Good Neighbor Health Clinic, which they founded,” wrote Joe Napoli, HS ’97-‘01. “They look quite pleased—as they should. The GNHC was a brilliant idea to provide a wonderful service to needy families in the Upper Valley. Or perhaps they are just happy to be back from a wilderness camping trip at Lake Umbagog! Two great individuals!”
Describing Manganiello and Mason as “esteemed teachers and clinicians,” Professor of Pediatrics Bill Boyle wrote, “Above all, they are the founders of the Good Neighbor Health Clinic for the uninsured in White River Junction. At its founding, many of us thought it would not be needed in the future, but now, more than 25 years later, it is even more needed, and the clinic operates five days a week. Bravo for its founders.”
And bravo to all who responded. Our mug winners this time were Mark Blackwood, MD, ’89 and Jennifer Lacy, MD, ‘08.
