Opie and I travel frequently between Maryland and Michigan. My service dog, Opie, is a typical yellow Labrador retriever who strives to be the center of attention. One day, an airport staff member asked why we travel so much. I explained that I am a physician-scientist with a clinical project at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, and I have a research group at the University of Michigan. Visibly shocked, she said, “I did not know that disabled people can be doctors.”
