Jeffrey Ugalde

As a young boy, he used to accompany his mother, a nurse, on missions to Nicaraguan refugee camps during the Nicaraguan war.  It was there were he was first exposed to medicine and how it can positively affect the lives of others. He was instantly hooked. He did his undergraduate work in Community Health at the University of Utah and completed his medical degree at the Universidad Internacional de las Americas in 2002.

Dr. Ugalde is a highly talented and experienced physician. He has served as a volunteer medical doctor in the same area where he once was first exposed to medicine as a boy.
