Ramon Jimenez

Ramon Luis Jimenez ’64 has retired from an active operative practice of total joint replacement and arthroscopy, having founded and led a five-person single specialty for 38 years in San Jose (his hometown). Over the past 40 years he has served the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and was awarded their diversity award in 2009. He presently chairs the Charter School Committee for the Foundation for Hispanic Education, which represents three charter high schools comprised of 1,500 students, mostly English Language Learners. He has worked and served on the steering committee of Movement is Life (MIL) since its inception nine years ago. Being a second generation Mexican American, he writes he is very cognizant of the persistent disparities of health and health care that Hispanics experience, as well as the clogged educational pipeline for these students.
