A child of Russian immigrants in New York, Dr Nanette Wenger was encouraged to follow her passions and value education. She talks to Dr Robert Califf about her studies at Harvard and Mount Sinai during the "golden age" of cardiology, the culture shock she experienced when she moved to Atlanta, and how to train physicians to become medical citizens in a global environment.
