Thank you, Professor Sakari Orava

Since my early years in medical school, over 20 years ago, my biggest dream was to have a chance to work together with you. This dream came true, even more than I had ever expected!

Thank you for your mentoring, for supervising my thesis, for all your teaching, our clinical research, our operations together, scientific international conventions, and sports club visits. But most of all, thank you for your support and your friendship.

Thank you, Professor Sakari Orava, for everything. I wish all the best for you and your loved ones.

My journey now continues thanks to your teachings and our shared experience.
