Dear Family and Friends,


Another year older and further in debt;  I wish it weren’t true but that seems to be part of reality when one passes 70 years of age.  JoAnn is now 69, Lory 40, and Jason 38.  We are living together in our home in Somerset, NJ.  Lory is working at Columbia with the School of Public Health International Program as their communications officer and has had some opportunities to visit program sites in Africa, which she loves. Jason is helping care for his mother as the strong person who can lift her in and out of the wheel chair and bed.  I am glad that I did not down size a year ago.  We still have two wonderful ladies working for us and couldn’t do well without them.


My life continues to be busy:  I continue my teaching and committee work at the medical school in Rockford, Illinois and once a week at the Saint Peter’s Children’s Hospital here in New Brunswick, NJ.  I have also been lucky enough to publish 4 articles in peer reviewed journals this year including one on Electronic Medical Records, one on the life of my mentor, Joseph Bellanti, and one on Congenital Cytomegalovirus and Zika virus infections.  My activities with the NJ Chapter of the NJ Academy of Pediatrics and the NJ Immunization Network continues to be consuming. 


Regretfully, I was not able to travel outside of the US but did get to go to Florida, Massachusetts, Washington, DC, and a few other places for my consulting duties.  Of course the reunion in Gowanda was a highlight!  I am lucky enough to be selected as one of the speakers at the First International Symposium on Zika virus in DC at the end of February.    


            Well, who knows what this next year will bring.  We wish all of you a Happy, Healthy, and Rewarding year in 2017.


With affection, the Frenkels:  Lory, Jason, JoAnn and Larry
