A highlight of Dr. Lewis’ career came in 2011 when he was invited to Ethiopia, Africa, with the People to People organization where he offered education and medical services to many people and physicians of Addis Ababa and Amanuel. This was a life-changing event. So in April 2013, he once again journeyed to Africa, and this time his family joined him where they reached out to the medical and social needs of families there. His children took money and supplies they raised at school to an AIDS orphanage in Amanuel. While there they visited schools, health care facilities, orphanages and other places. They hope to continue to reach out to the communities in Ethiopia, Africa.
Dr. Lewis is often a guest speaker at local multiple sclerosis and stroke support groups. He was a keynote speaker in 2008 for the Epilepsy Foundation.
