Pamela likes to think she's growing into a five-star physician based on her alma mater's vision; to be a healer, a teacher, a social worker, a counselor and a leader.

Despite the obstacles, she has championed rural health, preventive health, and telemedicine in various cities and countries. She hopes to advocate these causes worldwide.
