appropriately. It was not until I approached the young lady who
was crying that I found out what was happening. Our lead doctor
was physically touching, actually sexually assaulting and fondling all
three of our female undergraduate students. I was horrified! I was
devastated! I researched how to press charges within the university
system, resigned from my job and pressed charges against this
doctor.
The Ombudsman's office contacted me and took detailed
reports. They contacted the students and the students made
their reports and I waited for something to happen. Our lead
researcher, my former boss, responded by refusing to put my name
on the research papers that I had diligently worked on. Over the
next three months, I found out that this doctor had been sexually
assaulting young women in his office for at least twenty years. I
found out that the "sabbatical leave" was actually forced by the
university as a punishment for his inappropriate behavior with
women the year before I was hired. I found out that for a period
of time he was not allowed to have women in his office. As a
young college graduate, I could not believe that this could occur.
Haverford College provided such a protective environment. We
were taught to respect each other, to be socially responsible and
to stand up for what is right. I could not believe that with this
extensive history, a prestigious university would choose to protect
a vile human being who just happened to be a doctor over
numerous innocent victims, spanning twenty years! One university
official was shameless in asking me what was my price.
I didn't have a price. I just wanted justice for my undergrad
students and I wanted the university to make him stop. In
retrospect, I accomplished nothing. This doctor was known around
the county and around the world for his research and as the fellows
(all men) in his lab said, "Science must go on." These fellows had
traveled from multiple countries around the world to train with this
doctor and they could not care less that he was exploiting young
women in his lab. I have not thought about this vile human being
in years and the Cosby and Weinstein cases took me right back to
that unpleasant time. It was everyone's dirty little secret. Everyone
knew except for those of us who were from the outside - the new
people in the lab - and the University chose to protect him. That
was almost thirty years ago and here we are in 2017, with similar
situations playing out in the news. Every time I think that we are
moving forward as a society, we take giant steps backward. It's
painful.

As a physician, I recognized that I was having an acute stress
reaction to the "breaking news" report tonight. However, how
many patients will have similar reactions without realizing the
underlying cause of their symptoms? We bury these painful
memories and try to pretend that they could never happen to us
and then we turn on the news and are transported back to that
painful time in life. How many times do patients present to your
office with sudden onset vague aches and pain, insomnia, anxiety,
depression or some other new stress related symptom? How many
times do you think to ask what they were doing just prior to the
onset of symptoms? How many of them deny that they are stressed
or anxious and want, sometimes demand, that we do a CT scan
of their head or an MRI or blood work when they really need
