Massey and Chapel Hill residents enjoy trip

Pam Bryant Owens Holmes of the Massey community and son Dr. John Owens and wife Stacey of the Chapel Hill area will be visiting her son and John’s brother, Dr. Drew Owens, and wife Carson in Pittsburgh, Penn., the last week of August for several days. 

Both of their wives are physical therapists. Drew has been in a two-year training program to specialize in pediatrics. 

The group will enjoy touring in Pennsylvania. 

The Owens family said Drew’s pediatric orthodontist was Dr. Frank Campbell of Decatur and deserves kudos for the type of treatment he gave and for the personality and caring manner that made children and parents appreciate him. 

Good wishes go to Drew in his medical career.
