    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.''

    Nobel Peace official press release

    http://www.nobel.se/peace/laureates/1999/press.html

    If anyone else claims they won it they are lying and if they have a 'Peace Prize" with their personal name on it, it is fake. Please let me know where it is and I'll notify the Nobel Peace folks about the fakery.

    The Incredible Azskeptic...

    I am sure you are right Azskeptic, that this Spartan grad. made a fake plaque, had a bunch of people write articles about him and fooled the whole world except for you Azskeptic. You caught him. Great job. Azskeptic, you are much smarter than the whole world. It is an honor for me just to know that someone like you exists in this world of ours.

    Yes, that is what I say happened.

    Nobel says:

    http://www.nobel.se/peace/laureates/1999/press.html

    It doesn't mention your doctor...so anything he has is an addon by him or someone else. Sort of embarrasing to you and to Spartan that you would point out the inconsistencies of the guys story......see this kind of behavior some times with folks claiming to be Vietnam heros, etc......

    I am calling your doctor a fake. Don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize that he was not named by Nobel so he is self nominated.....cheers

    How dare they.....

    I must say that I totally agree with you Azskeptic. I remember last year when the Spurs organization won the NBA championship and they gave Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, etc, championship rings and I thought to myself, "These people are all fakes, they did not win the championship, oh no, it was the team that won and teams are not made up of people, oh no, teams and organizations are made of absolutely nothing, just thin air..."

    I agree with you Azskeptic, Docs Without Border is not made up of a organization or team of doctors. Oh no, they are made up of "nothing". Thus those selected doctors among Doc Without Borders, who dedicated their lives to helping people around the world, who were chosen by the Norwegian Nobel Prize committee to come to Oslo and receive the Nobel prize, are all just fakes. And those pictures which show Sean receiving the prize, they are fake photos and his plaque, it is fake too and the top institutions that place Nobel prize next to his name, well, of course, the top USA institutions, they do not know what they are doing. How dare they think that they know more than Azskeptic and the rest of AntiSpartan Attack Machine?

    Difference is that a Nobel Peace Prize or a Pulitizer is awarded specifically to someone......the tradition is that a single award is given out...not like the SPurs.

    But believe what you want......evidence shows otherwise from the group that gives the award. I'll write them today and get verification to post here.

    You shall know the truth and truth shall make you free....

    Unlike the Pultizer which is traditionally awarded to one person, the Nobel prize has historically been awarded to both individuals and groups of individuals. In this case, it was the organization of docs witout borders. A spartan grad, among a few other doctors, was invited directly by the Norwegian Nobel prize committee and he was honored.

    I truly hope that, Azskeptic, you will learn more about this but I know that you will not get the results that you are "looking" for... You will learn the truth and then I highly doubt that you will post it because the truth will be positive and for you, Azskeptic, to post something truthful and positive at the same time will not come to pass, not in this forum... However, at least, you may open your mind a little more, if not publicly, in private...

    and yet...

    and yet you are all still debating a most unimportant point. Its an amusing factoid about spartan and gives the prospective student nothing to hang his hat on. Focus on the stuff that will matter to the prospective and you will be doing him a far greater favor than debating for how many pages now? the exact extent to which a spartan grad takes claim of a prize. In other words: nobel or not, it means little in terms of the education or opportunities a new grad will have. Its a shiney coin being used to distract away from the things that prospectives should look for.
