Becoming Dr. Q: My Journey from Migrant Farm Worker to Brain Surgeon

Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa, Neurosurgeon, Johns Hopkins

Dr. Q, as he's known to patients and colleagues, is an internationally renowned neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, a position even more notable for the fact that he was once an undocumented migrant worker toiling in the fields of the Central Valley of California. He will present his incredible life story, from his impoverished childhood in Palaco, Mexico, to his harrowing border crossing and his transformation from illegal immigrant to American citizen and gifted student at UC Berkeley and then Harvard Medical School.
