Carmen Heredia Rodriguez reports: "Myladis Reyes, 26, fell in love with medicine by accident. She was a sophomore at the University of Puerto Rico studying chemistry seven years ago when she visited her aunt, a clinic internist, in New Jersey and witnessed the difference she made with patients. “She was always smiling. She always made little jokes,” Reyes said. “I just saw that and I thought, what better way to help?” The experience showed Reyes a new way to harness her interest in science and directly improve people’s lives."
