The Future of Medicine

The true spirit of travel, Dr. Molinar says, is to seek and find what can bring us the greatest joy and to share that experience with others. Like the Sir Walter Raleigh line, “I came to this shore/where, if I could, I would plant my immortal vine,” it is our responsibility to leave a legacy that shapes our society in a way that empowers and inspires. When asked about his role onboard and what traveling physicians can learn from health care travelers, Alddo Molinar responded: It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey, and to me, that’s what’s most important. In medical travel, we usually seek medical education, cultural enrichment, or a chance to spend time with family.
