My dream one day is to work as an Endocrinologistđź’‰

I feel that endocrinology would be a great medical field for me to work in. Because I have juvenile diabetes and know much about it, it will benefit me when going to school. I will also be able to create a special connection and have an understanding of what my patients are feeling and going through.
