Athlete Spotlight - Bailey Perez

Everyone has known that kid who goes bounding around the house and leaping off furniture.  While most are told to go outside, some are enrolled in gymnastics where they can release that energy in a fun and productive yet safe manner.  Few individuals will find the desire to make gymnastics their passion, but Bailey Perez isn't one of those kids.  Bailey has dedicated a large portion of his life to train, compete, and make the US National Team with dreams of making the Olympic team one day.

Dr. Cole Q&A Article

Achieve: When and why did you become interested in medicine?
Dr. Brian Cole:  I would say, at a very young age; probably going back to Junior High.  Having an interest, knowledge, and understanding of something that makes a difference to other people.  It was really that simple. It was mostly about learning a foundation and knowledge base that would lead to the opportunity and privilege to help other people.
