Ashvinkumar Patel (1954 - 1957)

I was born in Kampala, Uganda and went to Eastleigh Secondary School from 1954 to 1957. I graduated from Makerere Medical School in 1967 and did my residency and fellowship at Mulago Hospital in Kampala from 1967 to 1970. I immigrated to the USA in 1971 and continued my academic career in cardiology at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison.

You hear about stem cell research; the originator of this research is from University of Wisconsin, which holds the patent for 9 of the approved cell lines. I progressively rose through the ranks at the university and became Professor of Medicine and also Assistant Chief of the section of cardiology. I retired in 2001. Since my retirement I have been the Consultant in Cardiology to University of Wisconsin Hospitals, Veterans Hospital and Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where I spend two days a week.

I lectured around the world. Some of the countries include Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, Germany, Italy, and France etc. etc. My hobbies include skiing until the anterior 'cruciate' tear. I am avid tennis player and cyclist. I travel extensively. In 2004 I went to Antarctica. I am enjoying my retirement and am busier than ever. I work 2 day per week, mostly teaching, at Medical College of Wisconsin, in Milwaukee. I am keeping good health. If possible I would like to attend the golden anniversary reunion of Eastleigh High School. I send my greetings to all who make it to the Reunion.

- As of October 2006
