Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Meris Chang Chang


What I Have Done Since 1957:
Graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in physical therapy. Interned at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN. I worked full time in the field of physical rehabilitation for 44 years. I initiated and directed programs in hospitals, public health, private multistate rehabilitation businesses, skilled nursing homes and home health agencies in Wisconsin and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. I retired as the Director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, D.C. in 2005.

I am divorced and live in Rockville, Maryland. My wonderful daughter lives nearby in Bethesda, which allows me the pleasure of seeing my two granddaughters frequently. My youngest sister, Christine, also lives nearby. I am fortunate in having friends with whom I can share and enjoy the multiple entertainment offerings in the D.C. area as well as travel in the USA and foreign destinations. I greatly enjoyed Alaska and Italy and just returned from Paris, France in time to attend the 2010 reunion at the Hyatt Hotel and Glen Echo. Riding the carousel brought back some wonderful memories of Glen Echo.
What Keeps Me Busy Now:
I got bored after a year of full retirement and so returned to Georgetown Hospital to help treat patients in a rapidly growing new program in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation that is healing chronic wounds and saving limbs from amputation for 2 years. I consult to lawyers in legal cases involving physical disabilities and serve as a consultant to various programs as well as seeing an occasional private patient with a neurological or neuro-muscular diagnosis. I work when I wish to, 1 to 2 days a week in various clinics that need extra help in treating patients or assistance in developing new programs.

I have had the honor of serving on the Reunion Committee planning for our 50th and 53rd Reunions and enjoy resuming old friendships and discovering new ones with my B-CC classmates. I enjoyed co-chairing the Committee with John Symons for our 50th, 53rd, 57th reunions and now look forward the the LAST BLAST Reunion May 13, 14, 15, 2022 when the Class of '57 can celebrate the 65th anniversary of our graduation . This reunion was a challenge because it was originally scheduled for 2020 and then changed to 2021 and then changed again to 2022 due to the corona virus pandemic. Hope to see you there. Check in on the website for developing plans and be sure you have updated your profile information including street and Email addresses and phone numbers.

Avocationally, I continue to enjoy keeping up my small terrace garden, reading, socializing with friends and family, travel, discovering bed and breakfasts for long, lazy weekends (I highly recommend the Inn at Little Washington in VA. It has an well deserved international reputation with a 5 star rating both as an inn and a restaurant), attending the theater and concert offerings at the Kennedy Center and in New York and Chicago when I visit friends. My love affair with movies is ongoing. Sampling the many different restaurants in Bethesda and Washington is a wonderful culinary adventure. For those of you who have been away for many years, you will be stunned at the wonderful restaurants within walking distance of our Reunion site at the Hyatt. Most of all I rejoice in watching my granddaughters grow and flourish. Luckily, my daughter and the children (ages 21 and 18) live right in Bethesda in the Edgemoore neighborhood where so many classmates lived. The 18 year old graduates from Bullis this June, 2022 and will be a freshman at the University of Wisconsin, Madison where I and my daughter both achieved our undergraduate degrees. My eldest granddaughter will be a Senior at BU next fall.

My Favorite Memory From BCC:
There are too many to choose just one. I loved getting to know so many classmates, many of whom had great influence on forming the adult that I became. We had such a phenomenal mix of intellectually and socially interesting people in our class that everyone I was lucky enough to get to know taught me something that expanded my horizons as much as any class I ever took. I enjoyed working with the SGA, being part of the band and will be forever grateful for the academic base of knowledge that I was so lucky to receive at BCC. I am always and forever grateful for learning to type with Mrs. Raven. It is a skill that I still use everyday (unlike geometry which I have probably only used 10 times since I left BCC!)
