I was very happy to learn that a hospital here in Puerto Rico, Manatí Medical Center, just opened a comprehensive epilepsy unit in an effort to provide reach patients al over the island.
Crean unidad comprensiva de epilepsia para pacientes puertorriqueños
As the article says, the goal of the center is to monitor, diagnose and treat as well as perform surgery in the hospital so the patients don’t have to travel to the states to have surgery. Currently, the unit only has 5 beds for patients but they are hoping and looking for more to be able to provide care for more patients.
The modern and sophisticated hospital not only has equipment to monitor patients for seven days, but they have doctors like epileptologists, neurologists and neurosurgeons. This hospital seems like it has everything to provide the best care for epilepsy patients in Puerto Rico and you don’t have to live in San Juan or go to San Juan to be treated.
I’m sure patients will be in good hands here because my neurologist and epileptologist, who I think is the best neurologist in Puerto Rico, is in charge of this unit. Reading this made me very happy to learn that something is being done to provide more people with proper care for this condition.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
