The family, as a unit of society, plays a huge role in the formation of a person's personality, in the formation of his interests, moral values and guidelines. Children inherit from their parents not only genes, but also abilities, mindset, and often even professions. This is how family dynasties appear, which, in turn, are a direct reflection of the continuity of generations, the thread that forever connects the past and the present, thereby ensuring the transfer of experience, knowledge and skills from generation to generation.
My story is about people dear to me. This is my pride and role model, my mentors. Sevalnev Vyacheslav Georgievich, my grandfather, was born on July 27, 1951 in a family of rural teachers. After graduating from high school, he entered the Staro - Oskol Medical School at the paramedic department. During his service in the Soviet Army, he was a paramedic of the regimental medical service in Czechoslovakia, where he had to deal with medical emergencies. Indifference to the fate of people, willingness to help those who need it left no doubt about the correctness of the chosen profession. In 1973 Vyacheslav Georgievich entered the Voronezh State Institute named after N.N. Burdenko. He remembers his teachers with warmth and gratitude: I.P.Furmenko, V.I. Zavrazhnov, N.P.Shamaeva, M.A. Gubina, N.V. Bobrova. Student life was in full swing at the Institute: student evenings, meetings of the Komsomol committee. He was the head of the group and secretary of the Komsomol organization of the faculty. Together with students of other universities, he was part of the construction detachments. We worked on the construction of agricultural facilities, conducted communication lines. After graduation and internship, he worked as the chief physician of the Pridonskoy polyclinic No. 21 in Voronezh until retirement. In addition, he worked in his specialty as a dentist. Despite his advanced age, Vyacheslav Georgievich continues to work at a children's sports school. For him, a doctor is not a profession, but an outlet, a life's work.
Lavrentieva Inna Vyacheslavovna, my mother, continues the medical dynasty. Graduated from the Voronezh State Institute named after N.N. Burdenko, Faculty of "Medical Science", completed an internship in the specialty "Neurology". She worked in the primary neurological department in the intensive care unit and intensive care unit. In 2004, she underwent professional retraining in the specialty "Anesthesia and resuscitation". In 2010, she underwent professional retraining in the specialty "Organization of health and healthcare". In 2016, she was awarded the highest qualification category in the specialty "Neurology". He has 15 scientific papers, including in international journals. At the moment, he continues to work in BSMP No. 1 in the primary neurological department for the treatment of patients with acute cerebrovascular accident. During the pandemic, she combined work in the primary neurological department with work in COVID No. 7 in BSMP No. 1, saving people's lives every day.
For me, Mom is an example of unwavering perseverance, hard work, and at the same time an endless desire to help people. This is exactly what a real doctor should be - a professional in his field, a sensitive and understanding person. Therefore, for me there has never been a question of choosing a profession. I've always wanted to be a doctor. After all, a doctor is not a profession, it is a vocation, and sometimes it is a life's work.
Beatus, qui prodest, quibus potest – blessed is he who benefits those to whom he can.
