At Temple, more than a dozen medical specialists and resident physicians have been riding together in fundraisers for the past year thanks to two colleagues: Susan Gersh, deputy director of Temple's internal medicine residency program, and Anu Paranjape, interim chief of general internal medicine at Temple. The doctors agree that chatting while riding has also helped bring the medical staff closer. "I was [recently] riding with one of my former med students, and I never get to talk to him because we're always busy at work," said Gersh. "We totally reconnected on that 60-mile ride."
