My wife Monika appears on page 25 in the current Stanford Neurosurgery Brochure for 2010. She plays a patient in the picture, but she works in the department, and they asked her to model for the photographer.
This brochure is a work of art, printed on paper so thick it’s almost card stock. The varnish on the pages is so shiny you can see yourself in the reflection. I don’t know what these cost to print, but it must be $10 or more per copy. It’s the nicest brochure I’ve ever seen for any business or practice. I think my wife looks beautiful.
An interesting piece of information is that one of the doctors pictured is Griff Harsh, husband of California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman. Monika and I got to meet Meg at her home during a Neurosurgery Department dinner. I didn’t know it was Meg when I shook her hand, but when Monika and I got in the car I said that woman who had shown us how to exit the large house looked a lot like Meg Whitman. It turns out it was Meg Whitman.
