“I love seeing the smiles replace the worries on my patients faces. It’s gratifying to know that you can have such an impact on a person’s life.”

Meet Larry Sterkin

My wife and I have been happily married for 21 years. She is a pediatric critical care nurse at The Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. We met in Los Angeles when I was a medical student at USC and she was a nursing student at LA County School of Nursing. One summer afternoon in my fourth year, after I finished work on advanced anatomy study, I went over to the County Hospital intern and resident’s swimming pool. The pool was gated, but open to nursing students. Cathy was with her friends at the pool, felt sorry for me standing behind the gate, and let me in. We started talking and found many shared interests: medicine, music (she studied piano, I studied violin), and we both attended the same high school and college (although we never met before this time). I got her phone number and asked her out. One year later we married in Chicago while I was a resident at Cook County Hospital
