Bio: Dr. Chuck Radis brings an unusual perspective to medicine. After completing his internal medicine residency in 1985 at Brighton Medical Center, he moved his family to Peaks Island where he operated the Island Health Center.  In addition to his clinic duties on Peaks and Chebeague Islands, he traveled year-round by boat to Cliff and Long Island for house calls.  Although Dr. Radis eventually left his Peaks Island medical practice for fellowship training in rheumatology and clinical immunology, he continues to commute year-round on his boat from his home on Peaks Island to the mainland. His children, Kate and Molly, graduated from the Peaks Island grade school--at 40 students, one of the smallest schools in Maine.  In recent years, he has also focused on Public Health projects in South Sudan and Uganda. A non-profit he co-founded with his wife, Sandi, and son-in-law, Dan Crothers, the Maine-African-Partnership for Social Justice, partners with community groups in the Kiryandongo  United Nations Refugee Settlement in Uganda. Educational projects have included: traditional birth attendant training, first-aid training, and sanitation and vaccination programs.
