Author's Name

Dr. Harold Fernandez

Synopsis

Harold Fernandez is Professor of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery at the Hofstra- Northwell Health School of medicine. He is also Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery at Southside Hospital, and the Northwell Health System Director of Surgical Heart Failure. For the last several years, he has been selected by Castle-Connolly as one of the top thoracic surgeons in New York
Dr. Fernandez has received national publicity for his story as an undocumented immigrant who has made his childhood dream of helping others a reality. He came to the United States at age of 13 from Medellin, Colombia in an epic journey that included risking his life in a small boat through the perilous waters of the Bermuda Triangle to reach the coast of Miami, and then join his parents in New York. While living in America as an undocumented immigrant, he received a degree in Molecular Biology from Princeton University, where he was also awarded the Moses Taylor Pyne Honor Prize (the highest general distinction at Princeton), Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude. Following his Princeton years, he was accepted into the highly selective Harvard Medical SchoolMIT program in health sciences and technology. After graduation from Harvard, he underwent training in general surgery and cardiothoracic surgery at the New York University (NYU) Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital.
Recently, he has published a memoir entitled Undocumented: My Journey to Princeton and Harvard and Life as a Heart Surgeon, and has been featured in national media stories, including the New York Times. This book is about my story in America. It is about living here without documents for several years, and about risking my life to come here through a very dangerous trip through a corner of the Bermuda Triangle at the age of 13. I hope that the cover captures the essence of risking ones life to come to America, living as an undocumented immigrant, working hard to achieve my dreams, and then making my dream of helping others through medicine a reality. I would hope to capture this in imagery that also makes a visual connection to the wider struggles of the Undocumented immigrant community in America.
