April GDB Student of the Month: Yolanda Fuentes

April 17, 2020

My name is Yolanda Fuentes I am 4th year Global Disease Biology major born and raised in El Salvador. I moved to the Bay Area when I was 13 years old and navigating through a new country without knowing the language was extremely difficult, especially when visiting medical providers. This and many other experiences have made me want to work with underserved communities and immigrants. For the past year I have been very fortunate to be working in Dr. Rodrigo Gallardo’s lab at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
