The Will County Health Department Community Health Center has announced that a third Spanish speaking an obstetrician-gynecologist (OB/GYN) has joined its staff.
Dr. Veronica Arauz, a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, will be joining Dr. Cynthia Vera and Dr. Tracy Vera to provide a trio of bilingual OB/Gyne providers on the Community Health Center staff.
Arauz, a native of Chicago and a current resident of Schiller Park, says she chose her career at an early stage of her life.
“I knew I wanted to go into medicine starting in seventh grade,” Arauz said in a enws release. “My maternal grandmother was a nurse, and then a doula (birthing caretaker/patient advocate), in Mexico. She often shared her stories with me, and that inspired me.”
