nics working in any other health profession is similar. These figures can be discouraging to aspiring health care professionals that are Hispanic. The number of Hispanic health care professionals will inevitably continue to increase over the years and I want to be a representation for my community. I want the young aspiring Hispanic health care professionals in my community to know that someone just like them is capable of anything. I always knew I wanted to work in the health care industry ever since I was a kid. I always idolized doctors, dentists, nurses, etc. It has always been a dream of mine to end up working in a job where I can help people.
It was not until my senior year of high school that I knew for sure I wanted to be a physical therapist. As I started thinking about what career path in the health care industry aligned the most to my hobbies; I concluded that physical therapy was the career I wanted to pursue. The reasons were simple, my favorite activity is going the gym, I like staying active, and I enjoy learning about the human body.
During my first experience in a physical therapy setting, I was amazed that light resistance exercise can help someone recover from an injury or relieve chronic pain. Many of the patients I saw during my time were patients that recently got a knee replacement. The program the physical therapists created involved strengthening the leg muscles and supporting muscles of the lower body. It illustrates that exercise can be a form of medicine. I observed many patients during my observation hours, but one patient will always be in my memory. The patient was an older lady who broke down in tears of joy and said, "Today I woke up so happy because I had no pain." The way she said it warmed up my heart so much, I had an insane feeling of joy I never really experienced. That moment will always be something I think of when I need motivation to keep going. I want to relive that experience from the physical therapist's point of view one day.
will graph growth rate of bacteria vs time [min]. Things to ensure you get full credit:
Include table with all data ( times and number of bacteria )
Graph must have axis labels
Graph must have appropriate title
What kind of graph did you end up with? Was it positive linear, negative linear, exponential or logarithmic?
What can we interpret based off of this graph? (There are lots of things just tell me one)
What else can you think of that has a growth rate similar to the one you found in your graph above?
