If you recall, as shown below, Bambi posted a story about Ms. Joëlle Melki on July 4th, 2020. She runs a marathon for her country every year. Indeed, she is notoriously known for her unique “jump” in the air to express her joy at the arrival at the finish line. If you do not believe Bambi, ask the professional photographers of this annual event about her jump :).
Without repeating the whole professional journey and multi-talent of Ms. Melki from child development and education to health care services, Bambi will just remind us of the following: Joëlle (yes our own Jojo!) is a healthcare provider, working in the digestive and liver diseases clinic at the IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis and at a medical clinic. She is also certified in CPR First Aid from the American Heart Association and former certification with the Lebanese red cross in which she has been a volunteer during civil war times. Of course, in addition to all this, Ms. Melki is the MOST amazing daughter, sister, and friend anyone can have!
Well, first there has been the coronavirus pandemic. Then, more recently, life has been cruel to her/her family… However, Ms. Joëlle Melki is wise enough to know that, at the end of the day, life is just life. Yes, it does surprise us in sad ways. However, it can also bring us blessings in so many other ways.
Well, keeping all this in mind, check the picture of the plaque below about the latest achievement of Ms. Melki (despite her tough year!)! Yes, you and Bambi can read the following: Joëlle Melki, MA, Springmill Employee of the Year 2020, Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Indiana University School of Medicine!!!
BRAVO to Ms. Melki!! Thank you for your patient care at all times and especially during this Covid-19 public health crisis!
Fond regards to you Joëlle, from across the border, from your proud childhood friend Bambi who loves you very much. Please keep on inspiring her… and take good care!
