About Charles Goldman
My formal bio summary is: Charles Goldman, MD, received his undergraduate education at Yale University, medical training at University of Missouri Medical School and Cleveland Clinic, and psychiatric training at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. As a professor at the University of South Carolina Medical School he authored more than 25 articles in the professional literature and has written three book chapters.
My less formal summary: I was born during World War II on the west coast, but grew up in the Midwest. Now, I describe myself as a semi-retired psychiatrist, married to a wonderful woman, living in the downtown part of a medium-sized city. We love to travel and spend time with friends and family. We also love cycling, walking, reading, and movies. Between us, we have four grown children and four grandchildren. My interests are wide-ranging, and I recently published my first book: Weight Management for Your Life – ten steps to prepare you for adopting a healthy lifestyle (BookSurge, 2008).
Often, physicians don’t aggressively advocate healthy lifestyles because they themselves don’t practice preventive medicine (see When Doctors Take Their Own Advice). I do try to practice what I preach (and, of course, vice versa). Here is a Question and Answer section about my own lifestyle and reasons for having this blog.
I would love to hear from you; email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
