Dr. Jim White: "I am still at the University of Rochester where our program continues to thrive as a nationally recognized research and treatment facility in the care of patients with pulmonary hypertension.  My team has contributed to research resulting in new treatments and a paper in the New England.  Rochester is a wonderful place to live and work and my family is thriving.  I always enjoy going back to Pitt for talks and still remember Pitt, the faculty, and my classmates fondly."
