2022 Medical School Webinar

Listed below you'll find the recording and slides of our 2022 Medical School Webinar.

About The Webinar

This webinar, hosted by Hector González, was designed to support first-generation, low-income, and BIPoC students from the Central Valley with their medical school application process. We come with the understanding that students with these identities and from our communities have little to no resources on this process, and we provide a crash course on the timeline, requirements, skills, and resources needed to submit successful applications.

About The Speaker

Hector Gonzalez was raised in McFarland, CA, otherwise known as "The Heartbeat of Agriculture." Beginning at 15 years of age and extending through his college summers, Hector worked as a manual farm laborer harvesting grapes across the CA Central Valley. Through this experience, he took note of the significant health disparities faced by the predominantly Hispanic/Latino farm labor workforce where this population experienced disproportionate levels of diabetes and hypertension. He attended the University of Southern California where he received his BS in Public Health. As an aspiring physician, Hector seeks to leverage his medical education and cultural upbringing to connect with vulnerable populations that have historically had low levels of healthcare engagement.
