"Congratulations to all the people of Bahrain on this momentous occasion. We celebrate your pride and accomplishments over the last 50 years," says Mohamad Bydon, M.D., a neurosurgeon and Mayo Clinic executive medical director of academic affairs and the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa regions.
