Leading surgeon speaks at Norwich dinner

Dr Jerome Pereira, a leading cancer surgeon whose pioneering medical expertise and personal Christian faith has inspired thousands around the world, was the special guest speaker at the FGB dinner evening in Norwich on Friday, October 14 at the Brook Hotel, Bowthorpe, Norwich.

The remarkable story of Professor Periera’s international medical career really began in India where, as a boy, he and his family were heartbroken by the death of his 12-year-old cousin, Lyn, through cancer.

Jerome, as a teenager, determined to study medicine and eventually became a professor of surgery and an international trainer of consultants. His work also included intensive research into leprosy.

Dr Pereira is a founder member of the Norwich School of Medicine and an honorary professor at the University of East Anglia.  He is also developing innovative online learning courses with video seminars for surgical training in 20 countries.

“My work is so absorbing and our life is very full - and we travel a lot. But we relax occasionally as avid walkers,” says Dr Pereira who came to faith in Christ through the personal testimony of his Irish-born wife, Mary, who is a Christian counsellor.
