    Article on Spartan Nobel Peace Prize Winner!!!! (one of many articles)

    One of many articles written about Spartan graduate. Out of respect for this physicians' privacy, I put [Spartan grad.] for his name, [location] for where he was providing care, etc.

    There are other articles written by other USA journalists that show picture of this Spartan grad. receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. Big plaque sits on his office wall from the Norweigian Nobel Prize committee that reads: his name, Nobel Peace Prize, Doctors Without Borders, 1999

    The organization Doctors Without Borders was honored with the Nobel Prize. However, organizations are made up of people. A select few doctors whom the Nobel Prize committee found to have played a significant role in Doctors Without Borders and for all their great work for humanity, were chozen to come to Norway, put on the tuxedo and receive the Nobel Peace Prize. A Spartan Health Sciences University grad. was one of those select doctors!!!!

    Great news for Spartan!!! Great news for all Carib. Med schools!!!!




    Nobel Peace Prize

    Tuesday, November 23, 1999

    By [name of reporter]
    [name of newspaper] Staff Reporter

    A [location] doctor will take a break from helping the needy around the world next month to help pick up the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Dr. [Spartan Grad.] will fly to the Philippines on Sunday to provide medical care for women just days before he and other physicians from Doctors Without Borders accept the award.

    "That's what this is all about,'' [Spartan grad.] said yesterday. "I have been given the privilege to be in a field where I can help people.''

    [Spartan Grad.], 32, is a fourth-year chief resident of obstetrics and gynecology at [location] University Medical Center.

    The hospital allows him to volunteer for several humanitarian organizations, including Doctors Without Borders, [Spartan grad.] said.

    The organization offers medical aid where needed around the world and was awarded the Nobel Prize last month. The award will be presented Dec. 10 in Oslo, Norway.

    [Spartan grad.], a Canadian citizen, has been at [location] for six years. He and the hospital also coordinate work with two other humanitarian organizations -- Health for Humanity and Medicine for Humanity.

    [Spartan Grad.] and Dr. [another doctor], director of the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at [location] Cancer Hospital, will spend two weeks in the Philippines providing cervical-cancer screenings and other treatment for women. The trip is affiliated with Medicine for Humanity.

    "I am so excited about going to Oslo,'' [Spartan grad.] said. "We're hoping this will let people know how important volunteering is.

    "The award is wonderful, and we had no idea we would be acknowledged for our work. The credit goes to the organization (Doctors Without Borders) and the local people of these countries who have had the courage to bring about good health care for their people.''

    [Spartan grad.] has made trips to China and Africa with Doctors Without Borders.

    "My main emphasis is women's health care,'' [Spartan grad.] said. "In some of these countries, women's health care was not a priority. Things such as Pap smears were not done in China.

    "And preventable diseases were killing women.''

    [Spartan Grad.] said officials from Doctors Without Borders worked hard to convince various governments of the need to provide women's health care.

    "In these countries, like China, women are the primary teachers of children,'' he said. "If they are gone, the children are lost.''

    re: the spartan experience..

    But we can, at least, say this for sure and that is that Spartan gave him a great opportunity and he capitalized on it. There many more wonderful stories. Unfortunately, there are a few people in this forum who prefer to destroy any discussion about any of the positive aspects of spartan.

    You make it sound like you know him very well from all the posts you have written about him. How do you know his educational details? Are you on staff of Spartan?

    many hints and clues...

    dt, why is it that every time someone says something positive about spartan, you and the rest of the 'Anti-Spartan Attack Machine' have to accuse them of being on the spartan staff?

    The spartan staff learned about their Nobel Prize winner indirectly through this forum!!!! How did that happen? One spartan grad. got sick of you guys spreading half-truthes, lies and total nonsense and he started doing research in his state in order to find out about other spartan grads. He did research in only one single state, the state of Florida and he found: Docs of the Year, Residents of the Year, Entrepeneur of the Year and a Nobel Prize winner!!!! Wow, not bad for just one state!!!

    After he learned that the Prime Minister of St. Lucia was coming to Spartan, he posted it in this forum and then decided to fax all of this info to Spartan. In other words, dt, you and I and the rest of the your Anti-Spartan Attack Machine learned about this Nobel prize winner before Spartan.

    This grad., dt, would probably have posted all of the Nobel prize winners info, education, etc,,, but in light of the fact that there are a couple of people in this very forum whom are dedicate only to destroying spartan, even if it means destroying the truth, this spartan grad decided to keep as much as possible private. However, throughout his posts, he has left many hints and clues. I am surprised that an excellent researcher, like yourself dt, hasn't picked up on it.

    Ah, I see. That's how you knew. Thanks for the hint.

    As for the "attack", I developed a skepticism and it shows occasionally.

    Maybe the Prime Minister, as a gesture of good will, will let one of your grads be his doctor.....are any of them licensed to practice on the island?

    huh?

    Does anybody at spartan care about earning 20 to 30 thousand dollars a year, as a licensed st. lucian doctor? i doubt it. You are probably better off working as a taxi cab driver in the USA.

    azkeptic, you are not in medicine are you? Some of the things you say are quite ridiculous.

    same joke again..

    Azskeptic, you say the same joke over and over and over again... You even try and start discussions about it, discussions which nobody cares about. I am sorry for jumping all over you and I will try and loosen up...

    I actually detected some humour in what azkeptic wrote. I don't know, does having a sense of humour mean you shouldn't be a doctor? Yes, let's all get serious and go win us some Nobel Prizes. Stop smiling!

    Okay, you think you KNOW that you have a Nobel winner. Good for you. People, let's stop trying to trash the Nobel winner (giving shockandawe the benefit of the doubt). How about we focus on Spartan in itself, not some guy who graduated from Spartan a millenia ago.

    Curiously, why is Spartan's tuition so cheap? How does it expect to expand with such a low revenue?
