“Scott Kellermann, as many of you know, is one of my very closest and dearest friends,” our friend Rev. Christopher Seal of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Nevada City wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday. “Yesterday he was mugged in Kampala (in Uganda) and woke up in hospital having been bashed with an iron bar. CAT scan fine, some broken teeth, 30 stitches in his head, and a beat-up face, but ok.
“Keep him in your prayers. He doesn’t ever feel sorry for himself, but I wish he wouldn’t make his guardian angels work so hard. Scott and Carol are in Uganda at the Bwindi Community Hospital (which they founded) for a couple of months, then he’s on to Nepal to do medical work there.”
Longtime local doctor Scott Kellermann is a family physician and tropical medicine specialist. He and his wife, Carol, an educator, traveled to Uganda in 2000 with the Episcopal Medical Missions Foundation to assess the needs of the Batwa pygmies of the Bwindi Impenetrable Fores.
Scott’s son Seth is Rector at the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Grass Valley.
