Ship Talk Episode 5: The Power of Portland State: Eddie’s Story

Episode 5 of Ship Talk is out today! Stacey and Kanani are joined by PSU alumni Eddie Ramirez, who tells the story of his journey to becoming a dentist. Eddie persevered through numerous obstacles to graduate from PSU in the Pre-Dentistry track as a leader in his community and became the first undocumented student to be accepted into the OHSU School of Dentistry. He reflects on how his experience at PSU shaped his journey and how the opportunities he received at PSU paved the way to his dream job. Now, Eddie sits on the advisory board of the Pre-Health Dreamers group, does advocacy work for undocumented pre-health students, and is a national leader with the American Dental Association while working as a dentist here in Portland.
