Director of Patient Educationalicia@medical-outreach.com
Hi, my name is Alicia Torres and I was raised in the industrial, Mexican border town of Reynosa. I grew up in a Catholic household, but it was through Christian education that my family first encountered the gospel of Christ. Through different opportunities in my formative years, God started to develop in me a heart for missions and for helping people. I am excited to use nursing as a tool to show others the love that has been shown to me.
