Dory Segev

This year, Johns Hopkins doctor Dorry Segev became the first physician in the world to conduct a liver and kidney transplant between HIV-positive donors and recipients. But revolutionizing the organ transplant system in America is only one of Segev’s many interests that include lecturing, mentoring jazz musicians, being a classical pianist, photography and competitive slalom waterskiing. Not to mention he and his wife are swing-dancing champions. “The thing I’m most proud of is the people that I’ve trained – my academic mentees, my dance students, people I’ve introduced to music, people I’ve taught photography," he told us. "If you teach other people to do and love the things you love and do, the world becomes a better place exponentially.”
