Every Story Matters
“I’m originally from Mexico City and since I was a child, I wanted to be a scientist. My mom bought me a lot of books with the biographies of the most famous scientists and I wanted to become like them. My idea always was to help other people. When I was finishing my PhD, I was looking for a postdoc in Innate Immunology. I knew Dr. Santiago Partida-Sanchez’s work and was fortunate to get a fellowship and join his lab. Here, I’m free to develop my ideas and I’m proud to belong to Nationwide Children’s Hospital - one of the best children’s hospitals in the world.”
“Effective communication is a shared responsibility between health care providers and patients/families, and this falls within the journey to Best Outcomes. Medical interpreters are a critical part of this journey for services provided to limited English proficient patients and families. My goal is to make sure I bridge the communication gap effectively, linguistically and culturally appropriate, so that providers and families make the best health care decisions.”
“The reason I wanted to work in transport is because I love working with kids. What I like most about my role is being able to transport kids and bring joy to their life even when they’re not feeling well.”
