Вічная Пам’ять
Memory Eternal


Hello and welcome

My name is Semeon Bohdan Hrushovetz. The initials for my name, SBH, also happen to be the acronym for Science Benefitting Humanity. This has been a focus for my endeavours throughout my personal and professional career as a medical and research professional.

My university academic training spans a 16 year period and includes 4 post-secondary degrees:

  • B.Sc. (Hons.) in Biology, University of Manitoba, 1949
  • M.Sc. in Biochemistry, University of Alberta, 1952
  • Ph.D. in Cytogenetics and Plant Pathology, University of Toronto, 1955
  • Doctor of Medicine, M.D. University of Manitoba, 1960
  • I also obtained a Certification in Family Practice (CCFP) from the College of Family Physicians of Canada.

These degrees served as excellent tools for the biological research I conducted, especially in cancer research. They also contributed to the novel approach I used in my medical practice – not only to improve the diagnosis and treatment of my patients, but more importantly as a tool to enhance their prognosis (benefit). My novel approach to medical practice extended over 35 years.

After retiring in the late 1990’s, I continued to promote and share my medical knowledge, especially in the fields of healthy aging and life extension, through my blog on this site, my previous blog  DocSam Blog and my original website Science Benefitting Humanity.

I am continually interested in exploring how science can benefit humanity in the healthcare field by promoting healthy choices that can add years to your life and life to your years.
