Hope And Healing: Husband And Wife Medical Doctors Reflect On Life, Career

During medical school and early on in their careers, husband and wife medical doctors, Sumaira Arain and Suleman Iqbal would go up to 48 hours without seeing one another.

Now both work at the same Utah hospital, and it’s easier to make time to see each other. They’re finally at the stage of life where they can focus more on their personal lives, their daughter, and the joy they find in helping patients.
