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, via my original blog (http://docSamBlog.blogspot.ca) and the posts on this website: docSamSBH Blog.
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“.
