Congratulations; you make Mt View proud! Better invest that 20K wisely. It's going to cost a lot more than that to see you through med school, but what a wonderful start. All the best.

CONGRATS to Eduardo. I used to work for PAMF. This is a great program , PAMF has been doing this for many years. I am sure there are many more people like Eduardo out there who are waiting for a chance and break like this to succeed in life and become a useful citizen to their communities. I hope other clinics,foundations and hospitals come up with similar plans and make our young students' dreams become real. This will help our community when these students become full fledged doctors.
