  1. Dr. Joe, I’m greatly relieved to locate you and send my heartfelt congradulations. I do hope all is well with you and that you’re enjoying your new position. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were together with Oz, Walter and Jess at the League of Innovation’s Leadership Institute in SoCal. I retired in 2009 and was called back to serve as the Vice Chancellor at SCCCD for two years. By the way, FCC has had an APIC/ APA psychological services center for many years now.
    I wish you continued success and good health in your new role. Refox
