Josue Fernandez grew up in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and moved to the United States to continue high school in Lodi, California. During his undergraduate years at UC Davis, he was a Spanish interpreter for Imani Clinic, a student-run clinic, in Sacramento, CA. Through this experience, he discovered his love and passion for medicine. Upon finishing his B.S. in Electrical Engineering, he went on to do a Post Bac Program at UC Davis. Some of his past work included working as a volunteer bilingual sex educator for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, the International Spanish Red Cross, and Solidarios para el Desarollo. Josué is currently the treasurer and fundraiser for LMSA, co-coordinator for the Anesthesiology Interest Group, and distribution coordinator for RENEW. In addition, he currently conducts research in the CORE Lab (Cardiac Outcomes and Research). He is always interested in promoting mentoring events and organizing different ways for doctors/medical students/undergraduates to interact together. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with friends, traveling, and exploring the food scene in LA!
