Passion Outside of Practice
It's our pleasure to highlight a Lancaster City & County Medical Society member's "passion outside of practice" in
each issue of Lancaster Physician. Beyond their commitment to health care, LCCMS members have many other
talents, skills, and interests that might surprise you. In this issue, we're thrilled to feature Steven Bade, MD, and his
passion outside of practice.

Steven Bade, MD

WellSpan Family & Pediatric Medicine-Rothsville

How long have you been
participating in this activity?

Over the past 25-plus years; we have participated
in an expedition about every three to four
years. Each expedition lasts seven to 14 days.
 

Why is this pursuit special
to you?

It combines our interest in traveling and
experiencing different parts of the world, both
far and near, with our interest in science and
research, while allowing us to give back to our
world and environment. We also enjoy getting to
know people from around the world as we work
in teams together with the research projects and
learning their perspectives and cultures.

What else would you like
readers to know about this?

Among our most memorable experiences from
our expeditions...

Passion Outside of Practice:
Earthwatch Expeditions, "Real Science
Powered by Real People"
Briefly describe your passion
outside of practice.

Earthwatch Expeditions are working "vacations"
where the vacationers are helping researchers
with projects that mostly deal with environmental
issues. My wife Kim and I have been involved with
projects that have generally involved singular
species. We have surveyed parrot fish habitats in
the Canary Islands, monitored orca behavior in the
San Juan Island area of Washington state, helped
study and preserve leatherback turtles in Costa
Rica, studied the impact of environmental changes
in the Barnegat Bay on the Diamond Back Terrapin,
and studied how climate change is affecting

migrating birds as they travel through Acadia
National Park. 
 

How did you develop an
interest in your passion outside
of practice?

Studying interesting animals, endangered
species, and environmental issues in interesting
and sometimes exotic places is what drew me
to this organization and its sponsored research
projects. Add to that some adventure, learning new
things, and the chance to dust off my research skills
from before my medical days, are what keep me
going back to volunteer again.

PHYSICIAN

When Kim...helped "birth" terrapin hatchlings
out of their shells and nests, then watched as they
swam off into their environment; helped induce
egg laying and then collected and processed
terrapin eggs from the pregnant females; was
right next to a female leatherback as the sea turtle
was laying her eggs.
When I...watched a leatherback dig a nest and
took morphological measurements of the turtle as
she was in her birthing trance. I then caught her
eggs as she dropped them into the nest; watched
and photographed a pod of orcas as they swam
next to and under the boat we were on; got stuck
up to my hips in the mud of the marshes of
Barnegat Bay. 
I encourage readers to look into Earthwatch
and visit earthwatch.org to learn more about
opportunities to help the organization fulfill its
mission: "Earthwatch engages people worldwide
in scientific field research and education to
promote the understanding and action necessary
for a sustainable environment."
