Summary:
In 1980, Dr. Levi Watkins, a cardiologist at Johns Hopkins Medical Center, performed the world's first heart defibrillator implant. It marked the culmination of a decade of intensive research and experimentation, and the operation has since been repeated thousands of times. THE DREAM FULFILLED reveals how Dr. Watkins was shaped by the Civil Rights Movement, worshipping at the church of a young Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He later served as cardiologist to Rosa Parks, and in many ways, his career serves as a beacon of promise for those emboldened by King's dream for his people. Another medical pioneer is profiled in the second segment, DON'T JUDGE A BOOK. Plastic surgeon Dr. Rappel Lee offers new hope to patients who have suffered disfiguring accidents. Like no one else, they know how often people are judged by their appearances. But thanks to Dr. Lee's work with a newly-developed drug that attacks scar tissue at the cellular level, the physical scars of their ordeals can sometimes be totally removed.
