From Every End of This Earth
Transcript of From Every End of This Earth
Pablo is from Santa Rosa Jauregi, Mexico. At the age of 11, Pablo finished the sixth grade and dropped out of school. He then went to work at a brick factory where he made only ten pesos or about eighty cents, for a 12 hr shift. His job was to hall bricks from the ovens and stack them up in the waiting trucks. Pablo went to medical school later in his life. After he completed three years of residency at Natividad Medical Center, Pablo set up a private practice near the hospital, the Santa Lucia Medical Group. The hospital was established with two other Latino doctors to help and treat other immigrants.
