Jim Flurry

After 42 years as an educator, Jim Flurry continues to serve students as a trustee of the Marysville Joint Unified School District. Not surprising for someone named in 1997 as the Appeal-Democrat's first-ever Teacher of the Year. But surprising, perhaps, for someone who has lived with Type 2 Diabetes for the past 27 years.

Complications from his disease sent Jim to Rideout Imaging Services, where he was helped each time by Nuclear Medicine Supervisor Joe Maslan, Recalls Jim, "Joe was so accommodating and so helpful, he really left an impression on me. The extraordinary level of care he gave me was also gracious and reassuring. He puts your mind at ease."

Jim's current School Board term ends in 2012. With the help of dedicated professionals like Rideout's Joe Maslan to manage his health challenges, he plans to run again.
