Dr. Slaughter said he also found himself more connected to his patients through his work in the nonprofit. “It keeps my heart in the game,” he said. He also tells host James Creange ’17 about how he got into music — including a stint as a boy band member that opened for big names like Bon Jovi and Destiny’s Child.
