Advance Praise for "A Fullness of Uncertain Significance" - Gayle Woodson, MD

In this rich collection of stories and essays, Dr. Campbell reflects on his years of caring for patients and training young doctors to follow in his footsteps. With compassion, humility, and shimmering prose, he shares the joys, pains, and somber responsibility of being a surgeon.

Gayle Woodson, MD, surgeon, educator, and award winning author of After Kilimanjaro and Leaving La Jolla

From Dr. Campbell :

Dr. Woodson was one of my otolaryngology role models long before she also became one of my creative writing role models. We met in the 1980s when she was a junior faculty member at the Baylor College of Medicine and I was a head and neck surgical fellow across the street at MD Anderson Cancer Center. She has had a wonderful and distinguished career as a teacher, surgeon, department chair, and national leader. Her influence and prominence within our specialty was recently recognized when she was named to the inaugural class of the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Foundation's Hall of Distinction. She is also a role model in global surgery, having worked with the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center to establish only the second otolaryngology residency in Tanzania.

I learned of her writing a few years ago and have been impressed with the breadth of her work and her sparkling imagination. I was honored to have her read my book.
