Dispatch From: Providence, Rhode Island

After spending his early life in Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas; his high school days in Atlanta and his undergraduate years at Wake Forest, Curt LaFrance chose to get his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia, a choice that allowed him to do his part to make good on his childhood prayer, “Dear God – Show me the mind.”

“When I was doing rotations at MCG, one of the big influences was working with the neurology faculty there,” he says. “I knew I wanted to do something that would address looking at the brain and the mind as two sides to one coin.”
