The son of farmworkers, Raul was raised in Coachella and attended local public schools.
In 1990, Raul asked neighbors to invest in his dream of becoming a doctor in the Coachella Valley.
Raul earned a degree from UCLA and became the first Latino to earn three graduate degrees from Harvard.
Raul returned to the Coachella Valley as an ER doctor and helped start the Coachella Valley Healthcare Initiative.
Today, Dr. Ruiz cares for his neighbors at the non-profit Eisenhower Medical Center.
