Hey Pierson! My name is Gabriel Betancur and I am a first-year medical student. I graduated from Pierson in 2019 and studied Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. I was born in Medellín, Colombia and moved to Connecticut when I was 12 years old. After medical school, I wish to become a pediatric endocrinologist and contribute to finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes. I loved my time as a Pierson undergraduate, having been involved as a member of PCC, an intramural sports secretary, and a first-year counselor, and look forward to engaging with current students and helping out in any way I can!
