Nowadays, medicine is completely different from what it was several hundred years ago. Modern technologies, drugs and medical devices make life easier for doctors and patients. But all of these drugs and devices were invented by people. Edward Jenner found a cure for the terrible disease, smallpox. Florence Nightingale was a sister of mercy and community leader. Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was the first female physician. Carl Jung, the famous psychologist, tried to understand the human mind. Jonas Salk managed to find a cure for polio. Christiaan Barnard was the first man to replace a human heart. The lives of these people were full of ups and downs. Their stories are fascinating and worth knowing.
