|Dr. Héctor Zayas Bazán delivering|
one of the many presentations he had
made in the U.S. and Latin America
before Pharmacist Associations.
Bazán will tell us his secret to keep in a good shape at 98. He is also a good public speaker, well known in the circle of Pharmacists in his country, in the United States of America, and in Latin America. He needs more walls in his home to exhibit all the diplomas he has got in Cuba and in the U.S. during his brilliant career and many public presentations. Oh, he's a great poet too, having published many of his poems.
When Dr. Zayas Bazán was working for Linner Lab in Havana, at the same time he was attending the University, in 1938 he married Hilda Acosta McDonald, niece of the great Cuban poet Agustin Acosta. Until the death of Hilda on September 27, 2008, his love for her was demonstrated taking care of her in their home. Hilda was suffering of Alzheimer disease, and Hector didn't want to place her in a clinic. He actually lived for the love of his life taking care of her ever minute of the day. Amazing great heart! Hilda gave him a daughter, Teresita, now 71, living also in Costa Mesa, California, near her father. Our friend Héctor has the same last name of Carmen Zayas Bazán, the wife of the Cuban Apostle José Martí.
