Becoming Doctor Q
Bookmark and Share
Born in a small village outside of Mexicali, Mexico, Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa started working at age 5 to help with his family's expenses. When he finished school, he believed that opportunity for a better life could be found in the U.S. When he arrived in the U.S. at age 19, he spoke no English. Quinones-Hinojosa learned the English language at a community college, received a scholarship to the University of California, Berkeley, and then went on to graduate from Harvard Medical School. The story of becoming "Dr. Q," as he is affectionately known, is an incredible journey that is being made into a feature film.
