As a young student, John Crocker embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, spending eight months in the Gombe forest working with Jane Goodall. One chimpanzee captivated him. Her name was Fifi, and she displayed extraordinary patience and reassurance toward her infant. Upon returning home and becoming a doctor, Crocker found himself incorporating the lessons he learned from Fifiinto his work as a father and physician. Here Crocker shares how his time spent with our closest animal cousins has helped him better understand his patients with ADD, anxiety, and depression, while offering him insight on what it means to be human. Chronicling his return to Gombe 36 years later with his own son, Crocker also reflects on how his experience with the chimps has come full circle.
