Dr. Baroody was born April 22, 1924 in Florence, South Carolina to Lebanese parents. His undergraduate work was done at The Citadel and Texas A&M. He obtained a post-graduate medical degree from Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After residency in internal medicine and training in cardiology, he entered a private practice in Florence, South Carolina where he practiced for thirty-five years. Retiring from Florence Diagnostic Associates in 1990, Dr. Baroody joined the teaching faculty of McLeod Family Medicine Residency Program, serving until 2009. For the past 20 years he participated in short term medical missions with his wife Margaret to Ecuador, India, Belarus and Harpur Mission Hospital in Manouf, Egypt. In Florence, N.B. was co-founder of Mercy Medicine, a free clinic providing medical care for the underserved. N.B. was an elder of First Presbyterian Church and teacher of the Good Samaritan Sunday School Class. He published many studies in the field of medicine, and was president of the South Carolina Heart Association as well as director of State Heart Clinic. In 1970, he received the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. A contemporary and student of Ansel Adams, his interest in photography began when he was a child. He was an author of an award winning book of fine art photography with a second book to be released in April. While these details offer a glimpse into the life of a beloved man, the essence of his story was captured in his relationship with his Lord, which he shared with his family and friends.
