  • Can’t believe it’s been 25 years since Dr Larry Meskin and Dr Dom diPaolo founded the SantaFe Group in our living room in Santa Fe. Larry would have been honored to know the SFGroup has been together so long accomplishing many of the great things he only dreamed of. He himself was a recipient of the Shils award years ago. I wish the Santa Fe group continued strength, ambition, and innovation as it begins its next 25 years.Bravo!
