WELCOME TO SPOTLIGHT
The latest edition of SpotLight, a look at the people who make up Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, is available here. This issue’s cover story higghlights John Chang. As a world traveler, Chang visited about a dozen different countries and sought to immerse himself with the people and cultures of some of the world’s most mountainous regions, including the Himalayas in Asia and the Alps in Europe. The medical needs and poverty he saw in some areas as he travelled led him over time to devote literally thousands of hours and much of his life to a new avocation: search-and-rescue missions.
