Dr. Bunch on her inspiration for becoming a physician and her motivation to work with cancer patients:
“The love of learning, especially science as a student; I come from a family of educators both parents were teachers, both grandmothers were teachers and a grandfather was a teacher; being a physician was a perfect blend of love of learning and working with people.
As an intern/resident in the Baptist Princeton/Montclair system in the late 1990’s, we had a primary care clinic as a resident and a specialty clinic and mine was the oncology clinic with Dr. Lasker. The way he interacted with his patients and seeing the closeness/connection you have with patients dealing with cancer….I was drawn to that. It is a journey you take together and help people navigate their way.
My clinic family…everyone at the clinic is part of one big family.”
