10 Questions Featuring Michael J. Hriljac, DPM, JD, executive director, Illinois Podiatric Medical Association In this feature, APMA News asks one member 10 questions and gets all the answers about his or her passions, ambitions, and priorities. Would you like to answer our questions? Contact Aimee Condayan at arcondayan@apma.org. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? 6. I would order a medium-rare rack of lamb with roasted vegetables, a nice bottle of pinot noir, and something chocolate and decadent for dessert, with a vintage port. Starting my sophomore year in high school, I was interested in medicine. I went to a public school on the south side of Chicago. I was a greaser with slicked-down hair and a leather jacket. People thought I was destined more for Vietnam than medicine, but I fooled them. 2. 7. What do you do for fun during your time off? 4. 8. Why is podiatry the best career for you? Podiatry has been great. It’s allowed me to practice medicine as I always wanted to—making a good living and having the freedom to travel and indulge my whims. I have met so many great and interesting people in my practice and working within the profession with the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association and APMA. I have been able to meet many memorable patients, colleagues, and politicians. It has kept me involved and committed. 5. We are up on a ridge about 10 miles south of the North Carolina border. We have layered mountain views of three states. The mountains afford us an ever-changing vista of colors and textures with rising mists that drift in and out of the valleys in the early morning. Our local lake has water that tests cleaner than most city tap water and several streams that make our area the trout fishing capital of Georgia. It allows me complete relaxation fewer than two hours from Atlanta. If you could meet any famous person, who would it be, and why? Teddy Roosevelt; he was a remarkable man. He could read and write in multiple languages, was widely published, started the National Park Service, led his troops into battle, served as secretary of the Navy and president of the United States, and had a bully good time. Who’s the most memorable professor you’ve ever had and why? Adolph Galinski, DPM. He was a tough, gritty guy who 74 APMA News February 2013 What is your favorite vacation spot and why? I have been all over the world and enjoyed all my travels. My wife and I bought a home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia this year, and I expect to spend most of my vacations there until we retire. I enjoy hunting and fishing, as well as boating, woodworking, reading, gourmet cuisine and wine tasting, and action movies. 3. What would your last meal be? 9. Where or to whom do you go for advice? My wife Susan, my colleagues in medicine and law, and when appropriate, the Internet. What is the biggest change you’ve seen in podiatric medicine since you started practicing? I’d say it’s a tie between new technology and the intrusion of government. 10. What mistake have you made that taught you a great lesson? I had a hot temper when I was younger, which, in retrospect, caused some embarrassing moments. I have learned to control my temper, although driving in Chicago traffic still irritates me. In traffic, I am reminded that God must love bad drivers—he made so many of them. I usually commute to the office by train. Blue Ridge Mountains ©istockphoto.com/John Upchurch 1. worked his way up. He was extremely knowledgeable and reminded me of my roots on the south side of Chicago. He instilled lower extremity anatomy and surgery into my soul.
