Wednesday, July 20, 2022
Are you an immigrant? Do you think starting at Community College can be a disadvantage? Are you being pressured or discouraged by others? Do you think going to a Cal State can be a disadvantage?
Then you should come and hear from Dr. Navaez, who as a 19-year-old immigrant started at Community College and attended California State University and was admitted to UCSF School of Medicine, and who is now training to be a Trauma Surgeon.
Come and hear his amazing story and ask him questions.
About the Speaker:
Reinier Narvaez came to the US from the Philippines when he was 19 years old. He was a nursing student in Manila but had always dreamt of becoming a surgeon. In Southern California, he juggled work with premedical activities as he began his studies at Cerritos College. There, he was an active participant in Project HOPE and CCM, culminating in his community college time with UCLA SMDEP (now SHPEP). He transferred to Cal State Long Beach for his BS in Biology and Chemistry Minor, graduated Magna cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa, and went on to medical school at UCSF.
He is finishing his general surgery residency at the University at Buffalo, having earned an MPH during his research years while studying transplantation outcomes. Eager to devote his skills and deliver compassionate care to the underserved, he will begin his Trauma Surgery/ Surgical Critical Care fellowship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center this August.
