“Our family was among the many Chinese families who piled outside the gate of the U.S. Embassy as American troops were withdrawing from Vietnam. The American people didn’t forget about my family, but saved us and brought us here to safety,” said Margaret Lee, PA-C. “I want to give back to the people who sacrificed their own lives to preserve mine. I realized we are all connected in wonderful ways. I lived with a farmer/rancher family during one of my clinical rotations in Avon last year, and learned that each farmer and rancher here in the U.S. is carrying the country on their backs. I want to be part of the healthcare team who takes care of these people that toil night and day. I’ve come to Martin to learn from the people, to grow with the community and hopefully to take good care of the families along the way.”
