#GoodNews: Doctor Takes Paycut, Frees Up Time To Help in Africa

A neurosurgeon in New Orleans negotiated a 25% pay cut in order to help provide free medical care.

Dr. Sulaiman is a professor of neurosurgery and spinal surgery in New Orleans. He lives in Louisiana, but spends up to 12 days each month providing free services and surgery in Nigeria. At the age of 19, Sulaiman received a scholarship to study medicine in Bulgaria. The scholarship opened many doors and, in turn, he feels responsible to give back through healthcare. "I believe that happiness doesn't come from what you get, rather, it comes from what you give."
