Local doctor gives back to Ukrainian children and families through telemedicine


MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Russian airstrikes are becoming an all-too-common experience for people living in Ukraine.

Just last week, a children’s hospital was destroyed in a targeted attack.

Now, a Memphis doctor born in Ukraine is stepping up to help children who need care through telemedicine.

Dr. Anthony Sheyn works with St. Jude and Le Bonheur and is an associate professor at UTHSC.

He moved to the U.S. from Ukraine when he was eight years old, but said he still feels a connection to the country and the people living there.

“It’s hard to look at the images, but you have to,” Dr. Sheyn said.

Photos and videos of familiar landmarks and reminders of home. The destruction is hard to look at for Dr. Sheyn, who grew up in the western part of Ukraine.
