Example text

Background and Upbringing In 1955, two Indian teachers living in Ethiopia brought Abraham Verghese into the world. At the time that he was born, Ethiopia had just experienced one of the worst spells of famine the world had ever seen. This meant that the world Verghese was born into was one where many people struggled to survive; a world of famine and conflict. Although not much is known about Verghese's earlier years, we do know that he grew up in the Ethiopian city of Addis Abeba. Both of Verghese's parents were devout Christians and were practicing members the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church.

Among these patients was a highly-respectable couple hiding the disease from their children, and a woman and her sister who had been infected by the same man. Eventually, Verghese's passion resulted in his creation of the Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics at El Paso University in Texas. Today, physicians everywhere have used his empathetic approach to make the way they care for patients more gentle, more humane. Each physician that has taken the Hippocratic Oath now practices it to the full, all thanks to Verghese's pioneering ideas.

For ten years, Verghese watched thousands of patients die in front of his eyes. At some points he would see up to 80 patients a day, each one a hopeless case. The discovery of HIV in the blood of past patients by Gallo and Montagnier had not made his battle any easier, only more real. In addition to facing the shocking realities of the disease, Verghese was forced to face up to the prejudices within himself. " As shocking as being "homo-ignorant" was for Verghese, it led to him adopt the humanitarian approach to medicine.
