My dog is retired now,” says radiologist David A. Moeller, M.D., Res. ’80, with a laugh. An outdoor enthusiast, fond of hunting and fishing, Moeller used to bundle his black lab, Jasmine Rose, into his float plane. Then the two of them would venture out into the Alaska bush to hunt ducks with Moeller’s friends.
Though Jasmine Rose is now too old for hunting trips, Anchorage resident Moeller (age 68) continues to work. “I still like radiology, the challenge of it,” he says. “I can have a big impact on someone’s life.” The alumnus also enjoys giving back, having made a gift through his will to create a chair in radiology at UW Medicine.
“I’m really, really fortunate,” he says, “and I’d like to pay back the honor and opportunity I was given.”
