My name is Guilherme Martins, I’m from Sao Paulo, Brazil, I’m 26 years old and I have just finished medical school here. At this moment I’m working as a resident in a hospital which is part of the Brazilian public health system, where we help anyone that needs medical care. In my free time I love to read books, I love cinema, I love travelling and I love to spend time with my family and friends. Besides those things, as a typical brazilian guy, I love seeing and playing football.
Here in brazil I’ve been working in Brazilian public health system since 2004 as a volunteer and we try to provide medical care to anyone who needs it. Besides that we do some social work with all kinds of communities, trying to teach and prevent all kind of diseases. The best way to promote health is preventing illness so we work directly with these communities giving them classes, workshops and meetings where we can show them the best way to prevent the most common problems in their area.
Before doing that we study each community and the most common problems in their specific areas. As well as working as a doctor I have started doing medical research because I think it’s very important and the best way to discover new treatments about all the diseases so we can provide better care to everyone.
I really like helping people and I’m really excited with the One Young World idea and I’m looking forward for this event. I really hope to learn a lot with everyone present in the event and I hope I can help and share all my life experiences.
