About Ronald P. Blond
Born and raised in Los Angeles (and a Kaiser Permanente member throughout my youth), I spent my college, medical school, and residency years in the Midwest (Michigan and Chicago). My family and the beautiful weather lured me back to Southern California in 1990, when I joined the Dermatology Department at the Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center. I initially took full advantage of our weather with hobbies such as beach volleyball, tennis, kayaking, and mountain biking. Nowadays, my three small children have more opportunities to enjoy our wonderful climate than I, but I'm still grateful to not have to spend what free time I do have shoveling snow! I do, however, still seek out the snow when ski season hits.
