Before I started studying pharmacy, my mother used to tell me often that she did not feel quite right, she was always tired and had been recently gaining some weight without any apparent trigger or change in eating habits. It never occurred to me that these symptoms were the onset of hypothyroidism. After being diagnosed, my mother joined the number of people suffering from the thyroid, along with my grandmother and grandfather and many other Puerto Ricans.

My experience as a BioMed SURFer (Summer 2017)

Nicole E. Félix's picture

My name is Nicole E. Félix-Vélez and I’m a sophomore at the University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez, majoring in Industrial Biotechnology. I always loved science, the way the world around us can be explained in equations to solve or the thought of how the most staggering things are composed of the tiniest particles you’ll never see with the naked eye. Science just amazes me. Even more so, the fact that science is used every day by researchers or engineers to find ways to make our lives better.
