About the Author

Rick Hobbs is a native of Georgia but in the mid-1970s transplanted his roots (and his heart) to Maine. He has a BS and an MS in Physics from Georgia Tech and an MD from Emory University School of Medicine. Following medical school, he received his training in Family Medicine at the Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency. Later in life, he completed a year-long course in Medical Acupuncture at the University of Alberta. When he’s not engaged as practitioner or teacher, he loves being out under the stars doing astrophotography, sailing on Moosehead Lake, playing his fiddle, and studying Chinese. Rick lives in Waterville, Maine, with his wife, Elise, and their two dogs, Cozi and Tutte.
