While some people wear a monogram to let us know who they are, Dr. Gerald Whitehead Deas adds an extra letter to his name. What we see is IDEAS. This is his way of enjoining us to think logically and put our best ideas into action.
He Does It His Way
Physician, poet, patient advocate, playwright, media personality, political activist, public health crusader - Gerald W. Deas, MD, MPH, MA, is all of these, and more. He has battled major companies and organized whole communities to protect the public's health.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Dr. Deas attended Boys High School and later Brooklyn College, earning a bachelor's and a master's degree in biochemistry. Drafted into the Army during the Korean War, he helped to identify the remains of fallen comrades. Out of this gruesome experience, he developed a lifelong hatred of war and its aftermath. Years later, after witnessing how violence in our neighborhoods was claiming the lives of so many youths, Dr. Deas and other physicians at Downstate and Kings County Hospital Center organized Doctors Against Murder (DAM) to encourage young people to reject violence. Currently columnist for The Amsterdam News.
