I was born and raised in Almiros Magnisias on 1956. Medicine was interesting to me even from my school age. Guided with love towards it and with the desire to contribute, I have started my studies at the University of Aristotle at a Medicine Faculty, in Thessaloniki in 1975, from where I graduated in 1981.
