Stories from University of Iowa Health Care to Remember 2022

Here’s a link to University of Iowa Health Care stories to remember in 2022. The one which triggers a memory in me is the one about learning medical Spanish-which I never did, actually.

Oh, like all college freshman, I took elementary Spanish because it was required. I could mimic the Spanish accent because, while growing up, my childhood next door neighbor’s family were Spanish-speaking. I didn’t learn any Spanish from them, but I somehow absorbed the accent.

My pronunciation impressed teachers–but my conversational ability, not so much.
