Abel Getachew going to Georgetown on a full scholarship #EthiopiansInOregon

Getachew wants to become a cardiovascular surgeon since he had a childhood friend with heart problems who couldn’t afford medical care. He hopes to work with Doctors Without Borders to give back to communities in need. As part of his Corporate Work Study Program job through De La Salle North Catholic, he works at Oregon Health and Science University and had the opportunity to shadow a cardiovascular surgeon. Getachew said it was eye-opening and inspiring.
