Dr. Patricia Fenton, Oaxaca, Mexico
Medical genetics specialist

“When I arrived in Oaxaca, I started working at the Hospital General Dr. Aurelio Valdivieso. At that time, public hospitals had no genetic medicine care, so I was the first doctor treating patients with genetic disorders in the state of Oaxaca, and when we started working, we opened the first cytogenetic laboratory to perform cytogenetic analysis for those particular patients.”
