This month, WiRED is honored to welcome the 17th Surgeon General of the United States, Richard H. Carmona, M.D., M.P.H., FACS, to its board.
When Zgjim Limani, M.D. studied medicine at the University of Prishtina in Kosova during a post-war period, the school had to be rebuilt after severe vandalism by outside aggressors and the bombing raid by NATO. The Balkans had been isolated for two decades by the many wars in the area. “This impacted our health system, too,” says Dr. Limani.
