Ramon Resa discusses Out of the Fields ($19.95). At age 3, Resa became a farmworker in California’s Central Valley. The odds were stacked against him—poverty, low self-esteem, and prejudice. But Resa went to medical school and then returned to the Central Valley. He opened a pediatric practice and has spent two decades working with poor and under-served children.
Out of the Fields: My Journey from Farmworker Boy to Pediatrician tells the inspiring and poignant story of how Ramon struggled to achieve his dream of becoming a doctor.
