More letters can be viewed at Dr. Dan Gottlieb Psychologist Host of “Voices in the Family,” WHYY Dear Dr. Gottlieb, You have inspired me with your life. Even though you weren’t good in school, you went on to be a successful psychologist. You are a role model because you believe in helping others. I would like to be a teacher because I love children. I would like to inspire them as you inspired me. Sincerely, Masiel Hernandez, fifth grade William Cramp Fit Flyer Dr. Ana Diez Roux Dean Dornsife School of Public Health Drexel University Dear Dr. Diez Roux, After reading about you, you inspired me to help other children. I really love how you do your job. The facts speak for themselves. You wanted to learn about the connections between people’s health and where they live, work, and play. You discovered that … if you live in a healthy neighborhood, you will have a better chance to be healthy. All of us must help the unhealthy neighborhoods be clean. I don’t know what we would do without you teaching us how to protect our homes. Thank you for inspiring me. Sincerely, Ana Nuñez Luna, fourth grade Whitehall Healthy Reporter Edgar Chinchilla Medical Interpreter Einstein Healthcare Network Dear Mr. Chinchilla, Your story inspired me because it taught me that anything is possible. I like how you overcame your problems and then helped others who had similar problems. I also find it very interesting that you once lived in Guatemala. I wonder, have you traveled back to your country to help and give back to people there? You have made a differ- ence in this world. Illustration by Nikauly Fabian, St. Veronica Healthy Hero
