77, Compassionate

Karl is a life-long learner and a teacher at heart. He was on the faculty of the University of Kansas School Of Medicine for 28 years where he mentored medical residents on best practices in the field of anesthesiology. In retirement, he continues to keep up to date on medical issues and to share that information with the community. His topics range from opioid addiction to Medicare billing. His audiences range from senior ombudsmen for the state of Kansas to service groups and churches. He is a highly valued presenter for the Adventures in Learning program of the Kansas City Shepherd
Center. Over the years, Karl has volunteered his time and non-medical talents with a number of organizations serving inner city youth and families. Currently most of his volunteering is with the Retired Physicians Organization of the Kansas City Medical Society where he and other retired physicians work to improve the health and well-being of the community. With COVID cancelling all in-person presentations, Karl has turned his full attention to advocating for Medicaid expansion in Kansas, an issue of great importance to him as a medical professional. Karl models a life of service and the
satisfaction received from continuing to contribute to society. He advises new physicians and graduating residents to, “Continually expand your medical and personal knowledge, serve all residents of
the community in an ethical and unbiased manner, and put patient care before personal gain. In essence, always do the right thing.”
