The words "########## Hospital" break apart to let me pass from the exhaust saturated parking garage into the sterile-white passage leading to the main hospital.

I will always attribute my pursuit of a career in surgery to a man who I worked with early in my junior year while volunteering at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in the Patient Care Equipment Department. Sitting next to the shelf of SCD machines, waiting for the printer to spit out a request for another life-saving device, Joel told me his dreams of becoming a physical therapist and his struggle with helping his wife finally immigrate to the US from...
