Description


Harvest of Hope is the remarkable autobiography of Dr. Jorge Prieto, a respected physician and former president of the Chicago Board of Health. Prieto immigrated to the United States as a struggling intern from Mexico and dedicated his life to bringing medical care to the disadvantaged and displaced Hispanic community in the United States. It is this experience that lends so much credence and compassion to this book. Prieto's story is one of faith, hope, and love in the face of hardship and discrimination; and it is both a professional and a personal pilgrimage through half a century of dynamic change in medicine and the Hispanic community.
