Testimonial: Fernando Figueroa, Lake Forest College

Fernando Figueroa

There were two main reasons why this experience was a memorable one. The first one was the ability to live in a Spanish speaking country again. Even though I was born in Mexico, I was only able to spend 7 years there. This experience allowed me to experience and compare another Latin American culture. The second reason was my field research. It has allowed me to really know the physical therapy world. My project also combined the fields of psychology, physical therapy, and public health, which allowed me to understand the healthcare system better and how it functions.
