Why are you passionate about working for the Clinic?
I have the best job in the world. Every day I meet with families and I help them through difficult times. Sometimes I can offer a cure, sometimes a specific diagnosis, sometimes I can only offer sincere advice, but I can always reduce or prevent suffering for a child.
