Rachel’s Story

Thank you for inspiring me and showing me that women can be doctors too!

Dear Dr. Beacom,

I met you back in 2009 for a hip injury when I just finished 7th grade. You were the first female physician I ever had take care of me. After having you care for me, I started to be interested in a career in medicine. I had never considered it before because I had only had male physicians. It was because of you that I started my journey to be a doctor. I am currently in my third year of medical school at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Thank you for inspiring me and showing me that women can be doctors too!

Sincerely,
Rachel
