Jesus shares why he volunteers on the advisory committee for LCC:
While growing up I experienced first hand the absence of health care services. This nurtured in me the drive to become a physician and to address the health care needs of my community.
I have worked towards influencing institutional change wherever I’ve been able to, and positively improve health care access to all communities.
I personally have had both family and friends whom have battled cancer, and genuinely believe that to serve as an advisor to Latinas Contra Cancer aligns well with my lifetime goals.
