Unsung Heroes: Edward Cherney, MD
Location: Nashville, Tenn.
Why Dr. Cherney is an unsung hero: "Several decades ago, he initiated the first state-of-the-art continuing education program in Russia in St. Petersburg. When the program had to be discontinued for political reasons, he continued his selfless engagement in teaching and indigent care, be it with trainees, at Nashville’s Shade Tree Clinic, or elsewhere." —Paul Sternberg, MD
