When it comes to purpose, passion, and persistence, few have as compelling a story as Dr. Salvatore Forcina!
As a child born in Italy during World War II, Dr. Salvatore’s early years were spent poverty-stricken and without any proper shelter.
Like many Italians at the time, his parents followed a popular migration to Argentina, a stable country that offered rich natural resources and the chance for a more stable life.
Shortly after arriving in Argentina, he was sent away to live with an order of priests for seven years, as they offered the only available avenue for educating the boy.
The one thing that kept him going during this lonely time was his dream to study medicine and live a life whose focus was on helping people. His indefatigable determination eventually compelled him to enter and graduate from medical school, emigrate to America and become the chief of surgery at two major hospitals.
Listen as Dr. Forcina shares his story and talks about his book The American Doctor with host Bill Ellis.
