Country doc on cutting edge of genetic medicine working with Amish patients

I know there are some physicians on this board, so I thought this story might be of interest. It's quite compelling, IMO.

Yeah, that's a small piece of the story. Among points in the rest of it: Amish patients come hundreds of miles to see DeLine, who got a working budget of $20k to run the clinic at LaFarge, Wis., when he arrived at the village in 1983. Of course, his patients mostly lack health insurance, and those who come from a distance likely have little access to medical services. Most often are wary of the modern health-care system. The article also addresses the attitude toward life and death among the plain people, who are often quite private about their beliefs.

DeLine chose medicine as a career after watching his mother die of rheumatic heart disease when he was a teenager. Those are some of the high points.
