Temple Love Stories
Inspired by Valentine’s Day, we wanted to celebrate love — Temple Med style! We asked our community to share their stories of finding love through a shared Temple connection.
Did you also find love at Temple? Email some then-and-now photos and a few lines to email@example.com.
Joan Hoshauer Madison, MD ’55 and James F. Madison, MD ’56
“We met in the med school library in 1953 and were married in 1955. Our attendants at our wedding included Marianne Borky McEuen, MD '56 and Harry McEuen Jr., MD '54. I practiced allergy at Timberlane Medical Center in South Burlington, VT with Stokes Gentry, MD '55. My husband, Jim practiced dermatology next door to us in the same medical center.”
David Berman, MD ’11 and Lacy Sommer, MD ’11
“We first met at a Temple Alumni-sponsored baseball game prior to beginning medical school in August 2007. By the end of our first year we began dating and became engaged during our fourth year. We completed our intern year together at Temple University Hospital (TUH) while managing to plan a destination wedding during the spring of our intern year. David stayed on at Temple to complete his internal medicine residency at TUH where he is currently a hospitalist. Lacy completed a dermatology residency at Cooper University Hospital where she has remained as one of the dermatology faculty. It was a unique experience to train and learn together at Temple. From the anatomy lab to late nights in the library to middle of the night pages while on night float, we are thankful to Temple for bringing us together and for all it has taught us.”
Allison Sih, PGY4 and Aeen Asghar, PGY4
“Out of nearly 500 applicants, we happened to match at one of Temple's three urology positions. Moving from Brooklyn and Iowa City, we first met at the Philly DMV in June of 2016. It is a risk dating a co-resident, especially in a small residency. After dating for two years, Aeen popped the question at Lake Tahoe. Our wedding is this May in California."
