Today, on the occasion of dr Janina Białobrzeska - Paluszkiewicz name day ( all the best!), we present the third portrait of doc Maria Waśniewska ( 1921 -1980), one of the pioneers of Polish cardiology. She took part in the Warsaw Uprising as a medic. She graduated from the Faculty of Medicine in 1948, worked as a consultant cardiologist in Wolski Hospital.In 1965 she received her doctorate in medical sciences, and in 1970 she received her habilitation.
I had the honour to know doc Maria Waśniewska and participate in the consultations she gave to my patients. She was an outstanding cardiologist.
