Duane Graveline
Dr. Graveline was Born and raised in Newport, Vermont. Following graduation from the Vermont College of Medicine in 1955, Dr. Graveline interned at the famed Walter Reed Army Hospital during the time our space pioneers were just beginning to study the medical effects of spaceflight. Becoming a flight surgeon and doing space medical research was almost inevitable to this young doctor with stars in his eyes. Soon came the Today show, international recognition for his research on zero gravity deconditioning , his unique position as medical analyst of the Soviet bioastronautics program, assignment as NASA flight controller and finally, in 1965, his selection as a scientist astronaut. Doctor Graveline is the author of the books, “Lipitor: Thief of Memory” and “Statin Drugs: Side Effects and the Misguided War on Cholesterol.”
