When Victor Rodriguez, M.D. (Class of ’92, B.S., biology) was growing
up in Torreon in the state of Coahuila, Mexico, a young medical student
showed him and several other boys a cadaver lab. The initial shock gave
way to fascination and eventually three of the boys grew up to become
doctors, Rodriguez recently told a biology class at California State University,
Dominguez Hills. The top vascular surgeon for Kaiser Permanente in northern
California returned to his alma mater to encourage students to reach for their dreams.
