100th birthday of the founder of the polio vaccine

Today would be the 100th birthday of Dr. Jonas Salk, born in 1914 and the founder of the polio vaccine. Polio is essentially eradicated throughout the world, yet still remains an issue in some predominantly Muslim countries including Pakistan, Afghanistan and Syria. We are very proud of ProVita Medical Director, Dr. Jamil Itani, who spoke as part of a panel for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on the Dubai Eye radio station this morning as a call to action for Muslim physicians within the GCC to help eradicate this disease within these countries as it is in the rest of the world. Please take a moment to listen to Dr. Jamil as part of this panel.
