CW’s Latin Pulse

Max Torres

One student once said, “if you have Prof. Torres in a morning class, you won’t need coffee. He will keep you awake.” His enthusiasm and high energy are two of his most notable characteristics. He always encourages students to do their best and face all challenges with optimism, passion, and enthusiasm. Prof. Torres is a natural mentor, and he is always involved in projects that help our students. His Puertorican background helps him connect well with minority students, especially Hispanics.

Sickle Cell

Sickle cell disease is a group of inherited red blood cells disorders. People that suffer with sickle cell disease have an abnormal protein in their red blood cells. In the United States, most people who have sickle cell disease are of African ancestry, but the condition is also common in people with a Hispanic and Mediterranean background. Because the disease runs in families, couples planning to have children can have genetic testing.
