He based his illness on his earlier lifestyle, which includes much traveling and the impossibility to focus on a healthy diet. “In healthcare, we need to start with the person not with the product.” Duman supports this approach and exemplifies the importance of a patience centred future by deciding the medical treatment of diverse maladies.
