    You find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?

    N: I would greatly increase our research staff to look into how healthful diets can reduce cancer risk, improve children’s health, and tackle other vexing health problems. We have a great team now, but I would grow it in a heartbeat.  



    Car or Dog?

    N: Rat. My “roommate” early in medical school was rescued from a laboratory, and she was the dearest—and may I say, most hygienic—companion one could hope for.  



    What do you miss most about being a Kid?

    N: Believing that the good guys always win. In our battles with the food industry, for example, I have found you have to fight hard to triumph.



    Do You Believe Things Happen For A Reason?

    N: Yes. But the reason is usually that we push like hell to make them happen. :)



    If you were given a 1-Minute Ad Slot during the Super Bowl that you couldn't sell, What would you Fill it With?

    N: A commercial about the real cause of erectile dysfunction. Hint - it’s not performance anxiety.

    You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

    C: Well they have those multi-color crayons now that draw a rainbow and I’d want to be one of those, so I can spread happiness wherever I color : )



    You find a lottery ticket that ends up winning $10 million. What would you do?

    C: I would of course help friends and family in need and then would target specific charities that I felt passionate about - I would also attempt to buy the building I live in & am renting in, so that my neighbors and I could feel safe that we were never going to have to leave.



    What was the last gift you received from someone?

    C: The last gift I was given was a beautiful Labradorite necklace by my friend & Masseuse Maya Sievert in Cologne, Germany - it promotes strength & perseverance through change, balances the aura and raises consciousness while grounding spiritual energies. It’s also supposed to relieve anxiety and stress …. I never take it off and love it so much!



    What’s the last thing you watched on TV?

    C: The Walking Dead…. really addicted to that show.



    Cat or dog?

    C: Cat - her name is Cara and she is super spoiled.



    If you could shop for free at one store, which one would you choose?

    What movie can you watch over and over again?

    C: Star Wars



    What separates true friends from acquaintances?

    C: True friends would have my cell….. they are people you spend quality time with, not just at or through work - true friends are your chosen family.



    Do you believe things happen for a reason?

    C: Yes - I believe everything happens for a reason - sometimes it takes time to see that. I believe you need to try to look at the positive that will eventually come from what seems to be any negative in your life… Always.



    Tomorrow: fate or choice?

    C: Fate - I believe there is a plan for all of us that fate has a hand in - if you believe and allow it to manifest - all will be golden.
