The Chin Family
Dr. Nathaniel Chin chose to become a doctor because of his father, Moe Chin, who was a physician in his hometown of Watertown, Wisconsin. However, when his dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Dr. Chin changed his career focus to geriatrics and moved from California to Wisconsin to help his mother as a caregiver to his father. Although Dr. Chin’s father succumbed to the disease, he continues to honor his father’s memory through his work.
