GHHS Student of the Month

Congratulations to our Gold Humanism Honor Society January Student of the Month, James Ferrer!

James, a second-year medical student, is the epitome of the ideal empathetic, humanistic, and altruistic future doctor. He constantly displays selflessness by sharing any information that may be helpful for upcoming tests or by taking the time out of his day to explain difficult concepts that he spent hours learning the night before. He is not only a dedicated, hardworking student, but he is also the type of person that would drop all of his obligations in order to listen to a friend in need while providing uplifting advice and encouragement. His peers state that when one of their classmates found out that he had a brain tumor, James was with him every step of the way, making sure that he was never alone and assuring his parents were provided with clear understandings of the doctors' explanations. From making sure his patients always had a warm meal to providing emotional support to each classmate, the compassion and leadership he continuously demonstrates is exemplary of the type of physician that will change lives and leave this world a better place.
