When Dr. Glenn Gill was two years old, he travelled with his parents to India on the Queen Mary ocean liner. For the next 10 years, his father worked as medical missionary doctor in a jungle hospital.

The same year he arrived in India, Dr. Gill was bit on the face by their rabid pet dog. He received 21 days of rabies vaccine injections in the abdomen, which saved his life. “I definitely am a believer in vaccines!” he laughs.

Born in Toronto, he’s a husband and father of three grown children, and is a grandfather to four.
