|Read how a geriatric patient gave this pediatrician a second life experience.|
But it wasn't until Francine took on the role as caregiver for her ailing mother that she was able to view medicine and life from a completely different perspective. This had such an impact that she was motivated to write her successful novel, Rhythms, a family drama that recognizes the ever increasing number of adult children currently taking care of their elderly parents.
Whether Francine continues to pursue this dramatic writing style shift remains to be seen.

Francine's reach and research have advanced to now include development of a universal artificial pancreas. But there's nothing artificial about her continuing dedication and devotion to helping families keep healthy everywhere. That's the real thing.
