Belinda Ramirez, M.D.
She knew that she wanted to be a doctor as early as high school. Aside from her love of the natural sciences, she had very close relationships with her grandmothers who suffered from various ailments. Often the topic of conversation, these discussions fueled her curiosity and forged her path in medicine. She recalls “I still remember one of my grandmothers talking about her chronic abdominal discomfort… I know now that I could have helped her if she was still living today.”
