The second, no less important, reason for our geathering today is one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Academician, Dr.Gojko Nikoliš. Everyone who practices medicine knows how much Gojko Nikoliš as a doctor and humanist means to this profession and the MMA’’ the MMA’s head Col. Marijan Novaković said at the bust unveiling ceremony.
