Gary loves to trek outdoors with his wife and three (soon to be four) young kids, and he is an avid homebrewer when he can find a few moments to put together a new brew.  During the week he leads a small but very dedicated group of Tai Chi Chuan practitioners, which he has been doing for over 20 years.

"The collaborative spirit at UNC has been my biggest draw to the institution," says Gary. " To be at a place where individual and collective excellence is highly valued is truly inspirational for my work and clearly translates into high quality care for patients, top-level training to our learners, and research excellence."
