New pediatrician is a hometown girl

Dr. Emi Bays establishes Anderson practice

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

“I was very close,” said Bays. She said her aunt had a special way with kids, and loved being around them. “She made us feel comfortable and well-taken care of, and she respected us.” When Boone confronted cancer, Bays often went along to chemo treatments or doctor’s appointments. When Bays was just 13, however, she lost her beloved aunt.

“She was a very special person in my life,” said Bays. “I really wanted to go into medicine as a way to honor her.” Bays also shares her aunt’s passion for working with kids, and applying it through medicine.

“There’s so many things we can do to keep kids healthy,” said Bays. “Preventive medicine is very important.” She stresses that vaccinations, of course, are key, but there’s a host of things parents need to know to keep kids healthy.

As Bays prepares for the arrival of her own little boy, she’s gaining on her perspective as doctor.

“I always did my best to be empathetic, but I think it has made me start to get a little bit more understanding of the intense love and concern of a parent, and it will make me a better pediatrician.”

Moving, starting a new job, and getting ready for a new baby are keeping Bays pretty busy, but she does have things she enjoys when she gets the opportunity for downtime. That includes running, snow skiing, trying out new restaurants, and spending time with family.

Once Bays gets in the groove, she’d like to get more involved with promoting literacy. “It’s kind of a passion for me.”

Bays can be reached by calling 646-8727 or look her up on www.stvincent.org.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
