Eyzel Torres

Eyzel is a first-generation student from the northwest suburbs of Chicago. She completed her undergraduate degree at The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in Rehabilitation Sciences while also minoring in Disability & Human Development and in Life Science Visualization in May of 2022. Her interest in medical illustration started as a senior in high school when she discovered the field through her biology teacher at the time. She then applied to UIC’s Guaranteed Professional Program Admissions initiative where, upon completion of both a bachelor’s and an honors college degree, her seat in the Biomedical Visualization program would be guaranteed.

Now that she is in the program, Eyzel narrowed her interests in the field to patient education, public health, and multilingual content. While she is still figuring out what exactly that means, she is excited to make a difference with science and medical communications for many people.
