Rudy Wietfeldt has personally faced and overcome incredible tragedies: at 18 he was pallbearer for his father, who died suddenly in his 40s; at 25, Rudy had also served as pallbearer for his mother. By the age of 33, Rudy had buried three sons and a daughter. And Rudy has also suffered with what Wikipedia has called “the most painful condition known to medical science,” the Cluster Headache.
Through all the pain and suffering, the book “The Core of Happiness” was penned by Rudy in the hope that his surviving children and others would ultimately derive benefit from his philosophy of hope that has guided his life. “The Core of Happiness” is the first in a series of books with “a ‘novel’ approach to self help.” Rudy is currently co-authoring a chronic pain management book with Dr. Barry Mitchell; look for this to be released in 2012.
Professionally, Rudy Wietfeldt has been on the staff of the University Health Network (UHN) for almost 25 years. UHN is a global leader in providing exemplary patient care, innovative research and teaching. Rudy has held various clinical and leadership positions in the Department of Emergency Psychiatry.
