MEET SOME OF OUR AUTHORS

ALLEN CHIOU

Allen Chiou had always wanted to go to medical school, but his interests were diverse. At Stanford, he joined a bioengineering lab involving research in cardiovascular fluid dynamics and volunteered at a local community clinic. After discovering that patient contact was his true passion, he explored international health and volunteered at a medical center in Honduras. These experiences prepared him for the vigor of medical school and instilled in him a love of helping patients.

DR. DAVID IBERRI

Dr. David Iberri is now serving his residency at Stanford University. He studied Physiology at UCLA and later completed a post-baccalaureate program at Georgetown. This program helped him spruce up his application, and he was accepted into University of Vermont. His aspirations to be a doctor were inspired by his family and his favorite toy, a Fisher-Price doctor's kit.
