Listen in as the (mostly) true-life story of Dr. Michael Marwan Meguid's coming of age is shared. Born in Cairo, Egypt and raised in post-WWII Germany and England, Dr. Meguid would go on to become an internationally-renowned surgeon, founding a medical journal while practicing and conducting medical research at Harvard's Mass General, Brigham & Women's, MIT, UCLA, and Syracuse University.
