IMMIGRANTS OF THE DAY: THE SHAH FAMILY - PHYSICIANS

Rate this Entry

There's a great story in the Washington Post about which many of you have emailed me (and Paskal has linked in the comments).



Congratulations to the members of the Indian-born Shah family who are physicians making a world of difference to the folks in a medically under served community in Maryland along with other members of their family. There are stories like this all over America which don't get reported and the community of foreign physicians working in small towns, impoverished urban areas and many other locations in desperate need of doctors are true American heroes.



I counted 13 physicians in this family who have all moved to rural St. Mary's County, Maryland. Plus, they've recruited physician friends from India to join them as well. Said an elderly doctor struggling to recruit physicians to work in the community:

"It was just like miracle workers walked in," said Richard Martin, 92,
who was then head of the hospital. "I told them, 'You are the answer to
my prayers.' "
