...John Judson completed medical school at Georgetown then general surgery and cardiac surgery residencies at Yale, University of Utah, and Mayo Clinic.His
United States practice in both academic and private practices has been primarily in the field of cardiac and thoracic surgery.In 1968, while still in residency, John
wife, Ann Marie first had their first opportunity to work in Haiti at the Hospital Albert Schweitzer (HAS) which had opened its doors in 1956.Between then and 1997, there were 30 to 35 short-term volunteer trips to Haiti as well as other trips to Nicaragua and Poland.During that time, John
and Ann Marie also raised and educated their five children.Special problems at HAS in 1997 led John to leave private practice in Harrisburg so that he and Ann Marie could spend two years there serving in multiple capacities: for John - Chief of Surgery and Medical Director, for Ann Marie , housing director, assistant to the co-founder, Mdme Mellon, and numerous other tasks.On return to Harrisburg in 1999, John made an important career decision to leave the private practice of surgery in order to work in more administrative roles and to have more time for volunteer activities.This included completing a masters degree in Public Administration at Penn State, serving as interim medical director at Hamilton Health Center from 2000 to 2003 and currently as a board member at the Community Check Up Center in South Harrisburg.As a consultant for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, John now spends his working hours with the MCARE Fund (malpractice super fund operated by the state) and the medical licensing division of the state department.
and Ann Marie continue to return to HAS two to four times per year for volunteer service.Other volunteer trips in the past eight years have included Rotary missions to Haiti, Dominican Republic, and Ethiopia.John
was not active in Rotary
until 1997 but had recognized the tremendous service provided to developing nations by this organization.Shortly after arrival in Haiti in 1997, there was an opportunity to form a Rotary
Club in the neighboring town of St. Marc.John
became one of their charter members driving an hour each way over dark very bumpy roads for weekly meetings.On return to the states in 1999, he first joined the Capital City Rotary and then moved to our club in 2003.
During the last ten years, the humanitarian work of Rotary
International has been the focus of John's Rotary membership both in Haiti and Harrisburg.
