NIH doctor's work transforms once-fatal illness
Thursday - 8/30/2012, 9:55am EDT
The once-fatal illness now carries an 80 percent survival rate, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Neal A. Young. Young is the chief of the Hematology Branch at NIH's National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
Culbreath was completely cured of the illness and returned to football field during his senior year. It's achievements like these that have made Dr. Young a finalist for a Service to America Medal.
