So I took it up,” says Guo, who has conducted about 4,000 surgeries and has won several awards at the Xinyu hospital for her service to patients.”It is a doctors duty to treat patients and Im glad to be able to contribute to our countrys medical aid program as well.”Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page0Related ArticlesObesity on rise in rural China: studyAction plan needed to address obesityUK sugar tax spurs campaigners against obesityVeterinary drugs tied to obesityTest on rats shows air pollution increases risk of obesityTagsChinese obstetrician battles cancer with Tunisia on hermindPhotoStar Tracks in May50th anniversary exhibit of Ultraman series debuts in ShanghaiRocker husband praises Zhang Ziyi as virtuousJordan Chan and Cherrie Ying pose for photosHistoric Qingdongling tombs immersed in morning lightRare violet diamond to showcase private diamond auctionArtFilmCelebrityFashionFoodTravelAncient handicrafts preserved in museumZhouzhuang water town viewed through artistic eyesSun Zhijun: Another father of The Rickshaw BoyFrench couples photo collection on displayCartoonist Golo: Drawing is what I doArt imagines celebrities as seniorsArtist Cai Guo-qiang raises questions in new exhibitionElite French artists on show in BeijingAuction highlights Picassos less-known mediumsHalf the Sky talks up the need for more female artists in public spacesReworking ancient ideas of Chinese lacquerwareHistory on canvasStill photos of upcoming film Book of LoveDisneys The Jungle Book debuts with over $100mWarcraft movie to hit Chinese screens before US releaseSong of Phoenix to hit screens 2 years after directors deathCreating magic on screenBook of Love leads Chinese box office6th Chinese Film Festival in France to be held from May 24Box office fails to bring in big bucks during holidayChinese animation festival sees record transactionsTF Boys may voice Autobots in film sequelGigi Leung turns producer for Summers DesireLeafing through online literature for Chinas Harry PotterRocker husband praises Zhang Ziyi as virtuousActress Wang Ou awarded in BeijingStar Tracks in MayArt imagines celebrities as seniorsJordan Chan and Cherrie Ying pose for photosPrincess Charlottes pictures released to celebrate her birthdayActress Liu Shishi attends activityAngelababy releases new fashion photosActress Gao Yuanyuan poses in South FranceLiu Tao shines at Beijing auto exhibitionStar gazing: Who wore what at Beijing film festivalPrince cremated; family, friends honor him at ceremony in MinnesotaMet Gala: Manux x Machina: Fashion in an Age of TechnologyBeijing style: Denim obsessionFashion briefWearable technology on the rise in ChinaFollow your own rulesWhat color to wear this summerModel Mary Ma on colorsRare violet diamond to showcase private diamond auctionFashion briefSwiss watchmaker Roger Dubuis bucks the trendA sparkling combination on show from BulgariPhoto show on modern womenItalys movable feastWhite strawberry a new hit in ‪ChinaJianbing team ready to take egg pancakes abroadSweet treats for stylish MomsEat beatChasing perfection in the kitchenNoodles offer taste of Lanzhou in BeijingEat like a VIP at this South Korean restaurantWhite delightsChef of Chinese food in US glad to serve as cultural ambassadorTea festival features good sips and competitionSuperb selections for spring dining at Mandarin Oriental Pudong, ShanghaiHistoric Qingdongling tombs immersed in morning lightNanjings biggest private garden to open for May Day holidayGlimpses of Lhasas holiday seasonTop 10 destinations for female travelersTop 10 seldom-seen views around the worldQuanzhou charmsYunnan, a travel heavenCity of SpringsMorning sun showers snow-covered Great WallMixing old with new in central Vietnam2013 Top 10 Tourism DestinationsEditors PicksDC to introduce Chinese New Super-ManTimes: Adele is UKs richest female musician everKobe Bryant: Idol of Chinese idolsStars call for thorough investigation into vaccine scandalHot wordsJia ZhangkeHan HanGossipTiny TimesOscars red carpet ReganmianNanluoguxiangTeaShirley TempleLeonardo DiCaprioVideoModel Mary Ma on colorsLiyuan style: A symbol of elegance and graceChris back up on Where Are We Going, Dad?ColumnsRaymond Zhou:X-RayPauline D Loh:
