Pediatric physician and licensed Davis Autism Approach Facilitator, Dr. Angie Gonzales recently took time out of her busy schedule to spend time with aspiring health professionals at Chino Hills High School. More than 100 students sat in rapt attention as this energetic doctor spoke frankly about the challenges of medical school - the importance of grit and perseverance, and how she eventually achieved her desire to become a pediatrician. She outlined the typical medical school program and explained how each year builds on the prior, then allowed the students to ask questions about anything they didn't understand.

Dr. Angie is passionate about helping kids and challenged the students to give 110% in their studies, to never place limits on themselves or what they can achieve, and seek to make a difference in the lives of others. She also talked about her work with Davis Autism International. As a licensed facilitator, she helps those with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) live more full and complete lives. She runs Dr. Angie's Place in Norco, CA. #ihpc #healthcareers #dr.angie
