Daisy Pulido

Medicine Scholarship

She was a recipient of the MD-Community Scholarship this year. She is currently studying at the School of Medicine-San Juan Bautista and participates as a volunteer, helping low-income patients, at the Punto de Esperanza Clinic in Santurce. Likewise, she collaborates as secretary of the MedPeds Interest Group, where she coordinates the group’s events and has had the opportunity to help the Hogar Cuna San Cristóbal in Caguas, Puerto Rico. During these volunteer jobs, Daisy has learned to be a source of information for these communities and understands that, in order to provide them with practical health knowledge, she needs to see the needs of the population where she is serving.

Maralexa Martínez Valcárcel

MD-PHSU Scholarship

She was a recipient of the MD-PHSU Scholarship this year. Among several experiences with the community, Maralexa participated in the Virtual Premedicine Shadowing Program in the state of Texas and had the opportunity to work alongside health care providers at the Hospital de la Concepción in San Germán, Puerto Rico. Now the student has begun her studies at the Ponce Health Sciences University, School of Medicine and firmly believes that this place will lead her to expand her knowledge and experiences. As a future doctor, she plans to practice her profession in Puerto Rico and give back to the community.

Linda-Pérez_
Without a doubt, and for which I am grateful, the Fundación Intellectus scholarship has been an immense support for me, not only professionally, but also personally. After many years of study, receiving awards and being chosen to be an NIH Scholar has been a powerful incentive.

I have seen that the Foundations help a lot to solve the needs that we have as a society. Because of sincere intentions like yours, many of us can continue training as professionals.

It is very difficult for me to conceptualize in numbers what the Intellectus Foundation has given me during the past years. However, it is very easy for me to recognize that they have been a pillar in my academic success.

Juan-Silva-(MD-Comunidad-2021)
Through the last two years I have helped different communities, not only as a future doctor, but also as a citizen in multiple community initiatives. Having been helping the Santa Elvira community during my first year of medicine, revived my interest in serving different communities around the island and being part of the mobilization of decentralized medical services.
