About Modne Diagnozy / @mimax2
I was born in Podlasie, eastern Poland, grew up in Warsaw, graduated the medical university in Warsaw (1968), received Ph.D. in cardiology (1974), specialized in internal diseases (1976) and hypertensiology (2006).
I was awarded the medal of The Regional Medical Chamber in Warsaw. As a specialist of the European Society of Hypertension I am a passionate advocate of healthy lifestyle. In 2014, in recognition of my success I received the World Hypertension League Award for Notable Achievement in Dietary Salt Reduction at the population Level.
After many years of medical practice, I felt more and more that I can create larger written forms than typical instructions for my patients that they should take their tablets three times a day.
I decided to follow such famous predecessors as Arthur Conan Doyle or Mikhail Bulgakov and emigrate from the land of medicine to literature and journalism. This step resulted in more than 800 articles and 19 books written by me. I traveled around Europe and the Americas and also visited Asia, Africa and Australia.
Being a supporter of the third-time lucky principle – after many years of a love affair with medicine and writing I decided to take up photography. The passion started out photographing my loved one and after a few years, I decided to also pursue other topics such as everyday life in Poland, travel, nature, and medical conferences worldwide.
In 2007 I started to publish photos as @mimax2 on www.photoblog.com. During the last 14 years, I had published more than 5100 posts comprising up to 20 photos. My photos were selected 5 times for the front page of www.photoblog.com. I was nominated to Henri Cartier - Bresson Award in 2015.
Since 2012 I am the founder and editor - in - chief of Gazeta dla Lekarzy (GdL)
GdL is nonprofit magazine created by doctors and their families, acting for better healthcare for all citizens.
