Vital Signs: Heroes
PREMIERS MAY 4TH, 2020 AT 6PM
It is the time of year for reflection and appreciation, so Vital Signs is highlighting some true heroes in the medical field. In the central African nation of Cameroon, there are only two doctors for every 10,000 people, and for the lucky few able to get healthcare, many can’t actually afford it.
So one doctor decided to make a change, using his own free time on the weekends providing medical care and life-saving operations in the most remote parts of his country — all for free. Plus, meet an extraordinary group of volunteers in Turkey who are heroes in every sense of the word.
