Dr. Yonca Bulut is not only an attending physician in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Professor of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at UCLA but also a MiOra mentor. She credits her success as a physician and researcher to perseverance. Her own mentor, Dr. Hirschman at John’s Hopkins Hospital has always encouraged Dr Bulut to strive for the highest goals. Similarly, Dr. Bulut wants her own mentee Jessica B, a 10th grader at The Buckley School in California, to persist in asking scientific questions while having fun. We appreciate the heart that Dr. Bulut puts into her work and will continue to follow her story.
