Recalling and recording memories of his journey from the boundaries of his village horizons to the realization of his dreams and the rewards of his determination, the author, Lampis Anagnostopoulos, not only gained strength for climbing to new summits, but also appreciated the multiple “blessings in disguise.” These include the deprivations and suffering during war, the threat of the communist guerillas, the antagonistic or hostile reactions to his resolution to become a physician, etc. and all fortified his determination. His gratitude for support and inspiration from friends and mentors remains deeply engraved and inexpressible in words. Finally, he hopes some young individuals will decide after reading this book that “if he could do it, I can do it” and appreciate “the harder the struggle, the more glorious the victory.”


Lampis D. Anagnostopoulos is a retired cardiologist. After graduation from medical school, he served one year of ‘rotating internship’ at Philadelphia General Hospital, two years of residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Iowa, and two years of ‘NIH (National Institute of Health) Fellowship in Cardiology’ at Seton Hall School of Medicine and the University of Chicago. He achieved his Certificate in Internal Medicine from the American Board of Internal Medicine and in Cardiology from the American Board of Cardiology while on the faculty of Northwestern University School of Medicine.

He pursued his ‘mission’ to serve society in ‘private practice’ of cardiology. Whether the ‘mission’ was accomplished is deferred to society. His time in retirement is portioned to reviewing Cardiology journals, attending some conferences, discussing ‘lifestyle’ or preventive medicine in public schools or nursing homes/rehabilitation centers, studying the great books of the western world, nurturing the bonds to the University of Chicago, and sharing intellectual challenges in social contacts or encounters. Spontaneous inspirations may lead to reviewing or writing poetry. Also, ‘practicing what he teaches,’ he persists in some physical activities on a regular basis.
