Dr. T. Paul Tran wanted to return to his native Vietnam to share what he knew about how the U.S. trains future physicians, and he won a grant to do that. But he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer before he could make the trip.
Tran died in September 2012, about six months after his diagnosis and five months after he was awarded the grant from the Vietnam Education Foundation's U.S. Faculty Scholar Program. He was 56.
