Modesto Bee

First, UC Merced senior Julio Flores wanted to be a cardiothoracic surgeon. Then, neurobiology called his name.

Now, after research experience in diabetes, he thinks that’s the field for him. In the end, it doesn’t matter. Flores just wants to help people.

“If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything,” he said. Flores is one of four UC Merced students who spent this past summer interning at Georgia Regents University as part of the Undergraduate Physician Scientist and Research Training program.
