Dragon Con, Every year, Dragon * Con list of celebrity guests including over TV / movie actors of worship with Surfing followings. Culture a countdown until the convention of fantasy Labor Day with a series of short profiles Dragon * Con customers who specialize in the disciplines most surprising.
What is your title and where do you live?
I am an emergency physician (MD) and I live in Pelham, Alabama, a suburb of Birmingham. I work in a small rural emergency room in northern Alabama.
What you do in your job?
As an emergency physician I see people from all walks of life with a wide range of problems. Of course, people come to the emergency room for medical emergencies like heart attacks and accidents, but people without insurance often rely on us as their only source of care. That’s where my training in family practice really comes in handy.
How interested in this vocation?
I think the character Hawkeye in “MASH” inspired him. When I was a kid there were many women doctors, so do not remember having one as a model. I wanted a profession that would be both challenging and rewarding, but allow me to make a difference with others.
Have you been to Dragon * Con before, and what will you do this year as an official guest?
I started coming to DragonCon in 2007 so this is my fourth Con I got involved in Dragon * Con because of my interest in podcasting. I like the opportunity to record my podcasts in front of a live audience.
This year I will participate in several tracks: Podcasting, Skeptrack, and the Apocalypse Rising. I am especially looking forward to interviewing Dr. Scott Lillienfeld Emory on the morning of Friday at 11:30 (Hilton 204). It is co-author of 50 major myths of popular psychology: widespread misconceptions about Breaking Human Behavior. Also, last night I’ll be interviewing author Skyler White and down, Fly, which is a very different version of the vampire myth. This is the first of Skyler * With Dragon and I are looking forward to introducing his work to my fans.
Dr. Lillienfeld interview published in a forthcoming episode of the Brain Science podcast, while Skyler White appears with Christiana Ellis on a live episode of my books are other ideas.
Do you have a message about his vocation that he would like viewers to come away with? Can you summarize in one sentence?
Medication should help people, not cash.
Is there an aspect of sex or love of Dragon * Con events to draw you outside your professional field? Are you a fan, too?
I like the classics like Star Wars and Star Trek, but I’m also a big fan of Joss Whedon. The most fun I’ve had at DragonCon was in 2008 when it was part of a live performance of Dr. Horrible Sing-along-Blog.
