Unsung Heroes: Lowell A. Gess, MD
Location: Alexandria, Minn.
Why Dr. Gess is an unsung hero: "Dr. Gess spent three months every year of his career working in West Africa. At the age of 94, during the latest ebola outbreak, he secretly bought a ticket to help with the crisis, knowing that if he died at the age of 94, he didn't have much to lose." —John Berdahl, MD
