Dr. Sharad P. Paul is an academic specialising in skin cancer surgery, both in New Zealand and Australia. His Skin Surgery Clinic has one of the largest series of skin cancer patients worldwide, with over 100,000 consultations and 35,000 operations since the clinic was established in 1996.
Award winning Sharad has served on the National Commission of UNESCO, and teaches creative writing to disadvantaged children by personally visiting schools once a week, and by funding school libraries.
