El Dr. Jeffrey Drazen, Editor en Jefe del NEJM, nos hizo llegar este mensaje vía email, especial para todos los EMIS.

My advice to all students is this:  To make the biggest difference in the world, one needs to find an important problem and work to help solve it.  Whether this is how a car is delivered in a special place or the biology of Alzheimer’s disease or anything in between, find something to study that can make a difference and work hard to achieve it.
