Shaker’s medical innovators are on the cutting edge of medical innovation, treatment and research.
Shaker has a literal abundance of health care professionals who call the City home. Many of them are work-a-day doctors, nurses, and researchers. Then there are the bona fide medical innovators. They are committed to treating and researching treatments for Alzheimer’s, heart disease, and malaria, working to overcome the health disparities in African Americans, and even researching how to modify the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) so that it can safely be used to deliver specific proteins to diseased cells. We profile five of these residents.
