For Rene and Veronica Ramirez careers in medicine were always a dream. But with childhoods spent in rural California – Dinuba and Kerman – the couple’s desire to bring aid back to their communities seemed only to be just wishful thinking.
"I always thought I would like to be a doctor, but I didn’t know if I actually could do it," she said.
That’s Veronica Ramirez. She says her family helped her develop an interest in medicine early on.
“I’ve had medical problems in my family, my mom has epilepsy, and I have experienced that since I was very young," she said.
