Dr. Paul Frame, who serves as the POC's Medical Director, has been selected as the Parish Outreach Center's professional "Volunteer of the Month" for the months of March and April.
Dr. Frame's hometown was East Lansing, MI, where he and his wife, Gay, were high school sweethearts. He was an undergraduate chemistry major at Oberlin College in Ohio, and then attended the University of Pennsylvania's Medical School. Upon completion, he was in the Family Medicine program at the Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington, New Jersey, and then chose the National Health Services Corps, which was offered during the Viet Nam conflict era. Its purpose was to put medical expertise to good use in rural, underserved communities, and Cohocton, NY, was the location for Dr. Frame's two years of service, as a part of the National Services Corps. This was under the sponsorship of Tri-County Medicine, with whom he has a 41-year record of employment.
From 1992-2004, he was a member of the Preventative Services Task Force, which was set up to research preventative medicine and outline the results of their work.
Currently, though semi-retired, he lends his medical expertise as the Medical Director at the Conesus Lake Nursing Home, and also finds time to do computer work for Noyes Memorial Hospital.
The Frames resided in Dansville for many years and now have a newly-build home in Geneseo, where both Paul and Gay continue to enjoy equestrian events and activities. They have been members of the Genesee Valley Hunt since the early 90's, and consider themselves to be "horse people."
Paul and Gay are the parents of two adult sons, and revel in their four granddaughters, and as this interview ended, Dr. Frame commented on our Parish Outreach Center by saying that he thinks "It's a GREAT organization!"
Congratulations on being named the POC's "volunteer of the Month!" and thank you for your continuing service to this church's mission and outreach.
