I am a Doctor. Vero, and these are a few things you should know about me.
Aside from being a doctor, I have started this blog and youtube channel. A little about me: I am Colombian by heritage, but I was born and raised in Florida.✓
I did live in Colombia for nine years. Although I was born in Florida, about six months after my birth, we moved to Colombia, where we stayed until I was 9.????
We then moved back to Florida, and I have been here ever since.❤️
I went to St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale.✓
I then started college at Florida International University.✔️
I double-majored in Biology and Psychology, with a minor in French. Before graduating, I transferred to the University of Miami, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Psychology. After graduating, I was accepted into????
St. George’s University School of Medicine in St. George’s, Grenada.✔️
Grenada is a small island in the Caribbean, right above Venezuela. After graduating from medical school (finally an MD!), I decided to pursue a Masters in Public Health.
I am currently completing my masters at the University of Miami, and I couldn’t be happier to be back in Florida.✓
But Why did I create my Blog and a Youtube Channel?
During my 3rd and 4th years of medical school, I lived in New York City, where I worked at three different hospitals in almost every department.????
These included: Internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, emergency room, surgery, plastic surgery, urology, orthopedics, OBGYN, cardiology, pulmonology, ICU/CCU, rheumatology, family medicine, and primary care.????
I was able to interact with many patients daily.✓
I started noticing that not many patients asked specific questions about their conditions, or about why they had to eat healthily, why they needed to exercise, or why they should change their lifestyles.
I wanted to create a platform where I could reach many people all over the world, and that is why I created this blog and the channel.????
But What Will I be Writing About?
Fruits! There are so many. Some countries have certain fruits that don’t even exist here in the US. I’ll talk about a few fruits that are native to Colombia, which doesn’t live here.✓
I’ll talk about my Travels.✈️
I’ve had the pleasure of being able to see different cultures, different habits, and various countries. I learned many things through those experiences and will share some of them here.
I’ll also give you health tips! How to stay active, why you should remain active. What kind of things are healthy for your body. I’ll explain what you CAN do, but also the REASONS why you SHOULD do them.????
Often, not knowing why you are doing something is a huge reason why you won’t continue to do it. I want to explain the bases so that you can live a long and healthy life.?????
A few of the other things I’ll say may not relate to you because you may have certain medical conditions that won’t respond the same way, so definitely take everything I post here with a grain of salt!
Nothing I say here is mandatory. Doctor Vero
Nothing is, “this is what you have to do.” No way! I want to spark interest in your health so you can make adequate changes and continue with them!
I want to help you guys know which questions to ask your doctors too. So you can use your Doctor’s visit to your benefit. I have had my issues, back pain, neck pain, etc. We all experience health issues. This is why doctors need doctors! Illness is not exclusive to sick or non-healthcare professionals.????
We all have difficulties, and it’s up to us to help each other achieve a healthy lifestyle. This is a safe place for you to voice your concerns and questions.????
I love writing about all these things, but I also love input. Whether good or bad, I want to hear from you.
Welcome again to my blog!
Please subscribe, comment, and ask me questions. ????
