Kenneth Gross, MD/Van Gross, MD
Having received Diplomate status with the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry (N), Kenneth Gross, M.D. has always maintained a great interest in overlapping areas that include Internal Medicine, Psychiatry and of course Neurology.
He currently heads Fusion Clinical Multimedia, Inc., a medical education company in Miami, Florida, dedicated to areas that involve interspecialty issues. Dr. Gross has served as an instructor and consultant through Fusion at Nova Southeastern University at a psychopharmacology program for clinical psychologists and as a research neuroscientist at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. The interdisciplinary perspective is particularly germane to clinical decision making for the patient with Multiple Sclerosis.
Dr. Gross has delivered numerous Multiple Sclerosis lectures on this subject to health care professionals, patients, students and to pharmaceutical industry audiences. For him, MS is the “great neuroimmunological disease” that requires a merging of knowledge relevant to localization and phenomenology in Neurology and the immunopathogenesis of demyelinating syndromes.
Citing Dr. Labe Scheinberg, the late authority in MS as a key mentor during his training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Dr. Gross carries with him a very healthy respect for the diversity of MS presentations. He agrees strongly with Scheinberg who said “If you’ve seen one patient with MS, you’ve seen one patient with MS”.
Dr. Gross has recently collaborated in sharing educational program ideas with Dr. William Sheremata at the University of Miami who directs one of the nation’s largest MS clinics. Like Gross, Sheremata frequently applies expertise in both Internal Medicine and Neurology in the evaluation of Multiple Sclerosis patients.
Expanding an interest in neuroimmunological and some neuro-infectious disease issues in Miami and in the Caribbean, Dr. Gross has embarked on additional clinical educational projects involving Cuba, Trinidad, Jamaica and Guyana.
Four score and seven years ago, plus a century and change, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that Van Gross, MD should be allowed to write NeuroAbsurdia and Neurosatire.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, of polarized opinions, laced with threats real and imagined, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war, the pages of The Emergence of Van Gross, MD. We have come to dedicate a portion of this book, as a final resting place for those who here gave their coverage in the press, their contradictory elements, their ridiculous promulgations and over the top behavior that that Van Gross, MD emergence book might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this (although this sentence is a bit redundant).
But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground that Van Gross, MD treads upon. That would fuel Van Gross, MD narcissism which already demands an investigation. The brave men, women, gays, lesbians and Hugh Hefner living and dead, who struggled to buy this book with expired credit cards on Amazon.com and then were subjected to reading it, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what Van Gross, MD says here, but it can never forget what Van Gross, MD did not apologize for here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which the dead, who thankfully can’t read this book, have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion-absolutely no purchasing or reading of any Van Gross, MD book, now or in the future—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain despite being forced to tolerate Van Gross, MD during their pathetic lives of intermittent Van Gross, MD brainwashing—that this nation, these Americas, this world, under God or riding shotgun with Camus shall have a new birth of freedom and mandatory non-reading of Van Gross, MD scribble—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth, excepting a giant tsunami, either that or we start singing along with Mitch, Lady Gaga or John Lennon crooning “Imagine there’s no country” while pondering Che, Master Haywood Allen, Malinowski, Bill Buckley or Carl Jung and grooving on some Trotsky/Bruno Bettelheim or at least wolfing down a helping of Ayn Rand if not Jean Jacques Rousseau.
