He enjoys giving back to his alma mater by serving on the advisory board of the Duke Institute for Brain Science, which pioneers research for Alzheimer’s and other conditions that affect the brain and nervous system. Andrew continues to follow his passion for ice hockey, dating back to his playing days in high school and at Duke , and today spends many hours coaching his sons and their teammates on the ice here in Atlanta.
“I have no formal background in dance, and therefore will smile and laugh my way through the nervousness that will surely ensue; but I look forward with great excitement to meeting this new challenge. I was introduced to this great event and worthy cause through my colleague and friend Dr Kristina Price, and am honored that she has asked me to be a part of it.
I am also personally touched by Alzheimer’s disease as it has affected my grandmother , my only living grandparent, whom I will be proud to watch turn 100 years of age this year, though she no longer recognizes any of her family due to the slow progression of this disease . I dedicate my efforts in training for this event to her and to the memory of my mother, who also unfortunately fell victim to illness last year . I humbly ask you to consider a donation to the search for a cure for this devastating disease, which affects the lives of so many victims and their families every day.”
