  5. Hello Dr. Phoebe Chi,

    Your establishments and achievements are very inspiring and admirable. I am going to follow you. Just like you I worked for 4-5 years in Indian hospitals as a medical officer in Internal Medicine department and pursued MPH. We share many career background similarities. On a humorous note, apart from the career background similarity another similarity is you are following me and now I am following you!

  7. I’m glad to have been introduced to your blog and look forward to following you. Our daughter graduated from UNT, like you did, and is a molecular biologist/geneticist in Houston. And she has dogs – 3 now between her and her husband. 🙂 I just noticed those similarities right away between you and my daughter. Your blog looks very interesting and beautiful!

  10. Thanks for the recent follow! Since I’m really just puting random thoughts out there, I’m sure I can also be very wrong with things. If that should be the case, just call me out on it!
    Regards and respects.


  11. Hi Phoebe, thanks for taking the time to read and follow my blog.
    Amazing that human nature has the capacity to bring great happines to others through giving – while that same nature has the capacity to bring great suffering and misery to others through getting. Duality of man-kind!

    After reading some of your postings I would like to sign-up as a follower.
    I look forward to reading more of them.

    Warmest regards
