Andrew hunter paraplegic sexual health

opinion

It is a great honor for me to be invited to give the G. It is also very personal for me because Heiner Sell was my best friend and our families have always been close. We worked together during the week and played tennis together on the weekends. Given my Andrew hunter paraplegic sexual health personal relationship with Heiner, I was asked to tell you a little about him and how this lectureship in his name came to be.

Heiner was born in Germany inthe son of a physician. He immediately impressed me with his enthusiasm and personal warmth. During my residency and fellowship, Heiner was one of my teachers. Later, he was my partner in practice and collaborator in research.

Heiner met all my criteria of what a physician and a leader should be. He was objective and hard working, but still he was always kind and pleasant. He was a good listener, but analytical and persuasive in his comments and decisive in his actions. He constantly looked for answers to the numerous research questions relating to care of people with SCI and was relentless in pointing these out to his colleagues, encouraging them to seek greater understanding by conducting research.

Andrew hunter paraplegic sexual health had a great influence on my personal and professional life. After completing my SCI fellowship inI returned with my family to my native country of Iceland.

Andrew Hunter and Doug Munro...

I was planning to return to Iceland again in when Heiner got ill with cancer and was unable to return Andrew hunter paraplegic sexual health work. Where I and my family were going to live seemed such a trivial concern compared to what Heiner and his family were going through. Heiner was one of the doctors who developed ASIA as an organization during the s. Unfortunately, fate would have it otherwise. In early Januaryhe became ill with cancer and never returned to work after that.

He died less than 4 months later.

He was just 43 years old. Sincethe Sell Fund has made it possible for ASIA to invite leading basic scientists as well as outstanding clinicians and clinical investigators to present their work at the Annual Scientific Meetings Table 1. Given the accomplishments of the previous Sell lecturers, I feel humble to be in their company.
