From Dr. Aronson's Blog: At War with the Suffering of Children

I have been in Haiti since last Saturday and have had the best time ever in the 5 years that I have been working here. The people are happier and Port au Prince seems more settled and productive. I have no scientific proof of this; it is just how it seems to me after 15 trips. Read more.

From Dr. Aronson's Blog: A Tribute to a Father

Long before there were influencers and thought leaders in my life, there was my father, Harold Aronson. He grew up in Brooklyn, attended Tilden High School, and was likely the only Jewish boy who played three sports in a public high school in New York in the 1930's. He excelled at basketball, baseball, and football and was conscripted into the US Army after Pearl Harbor. He was stationed in Europe, mostly in Belgium, and then was shipped out to the Philippines. Because of his prior experience running a grocery store, he was placed in the "mess" and he learned how to order and manage food services for thousands of GI's while in Manila. They sent the Yankee platoon off to combat and my father was left behind to manage the "store" in Manila. That is why he survived WWII. When I went through some old papers preparing an application for my mother's veteran's benefits, I found commendations awarded to my father in those years. He even received some medals from the US Army. Read more.
