CLASS NOTES

1984

Bonnie Gieschen
Classmates of 1984: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE plan to attend OUR 20th reunion on 6/12/2004!!! I have heard from Rob and Becky and a few others that they plan to come and it would be great to have a big turnout. (If you haven't been around in a while you won't recognize UC Davis Medical Center). Life in Davis itself is pretty quiet. My twins, Josh and Katie, are 5 and we just added a baby sister, Lillian, this summer. I get to see Chris Sweeny at Kaiser South and I talk with Carolyn Getman fairly frequently. I hear from Dave Deutch, Peggy Curran, Bill Hope and Pat Fluher fairly regularly. All are well. I ran into Julie Quakenbush at a conference this past April — she looks as young and perky as ever!
 
If there is anything I can do to help with making your reunion visit go more smoothly (i.e. help with childcare) let me know! Mark your calendars now! And if you really, really, really can't come for some reason, please send us some current photos and info so we can get updates on everyone!

1999

Karen Schwartz Koolpe
is still in radiology residency at UC San Diego. Included is a picture of her and her twins, Hannah and Sophie, who are now 18 months old. Her husband, Mitch Koolpe (UC Davis PhD in immunology, 1999), does breast cancer research at the Burnham.
 


Jennifer W. Oliver & David Oliver
We've had several personal and career changes lately. Jennifer was recently promoted to director of the Rheumatology Program at Isis Pharmaceuticals in Carlsbad. She is directing three phase 2 clinical drug trials on an experimental drug for rheumatoid arthritis. We both plan to attend the American College of Rheumatology meeting in Orlando in October, as Isis Pharmaceuticals presents data from one of those trials. Prior to her promotion, she had worked as medical monitor on a non-small cell lung cancer phase 3 trial.

I returned from Operation Iraqi Freedom in late July. While in Kuwait and Iraq, I was the medical officer for 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, which operated the amphibious assault vehicles that transported Marines from Kuwait to Baghdad and beyond. Lieutenant Dave Barnes, Class of 2001, worked in parallel with me as he was the doctor for the 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, which is homeported in Camp Lejeune, NC. Oddly enough, I interviewed Dave for medical school. Luckily, we treated much more Montezuma's Revenge than traumatic injuries while in Iraq. Following a two-month shipboard return on the USS Cleveland, I started psychiatry residency on Labor Day at Naval Medical Center, San Diego.
