Dr. Thomas Michel unzips a black roller bag and pulls out a bright red accordion. It’s Rosie, his “protest accordion.”
Michel, who heads up a cardiovascualar lab through Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, is at Logan Airport with a few colleagues from the lab. Michel leads them in a sampling of patriotic folk songs.
This is a welcome party that was supposed to happen in February, when an Iranian doctor was scheduled to arrive at Logan to begin his Harvard Med School post-doc position.
