A few days ago I had the good fortune to meet Dr. Muela Rota ("wherever she is, she is grade") and to accompany her for a while at her work in Vall d'Hebron. There, Dr. Muela Rota spends visit every Tuesday afternoon with hospitalized children. Her instruments at work are not the usual ones in a health center: the corresponding white coat, full of embroidery and stickers, her hair tied up in a pair of pigtails with bows and colored clips, her red nose and red cheeks. Doctor Muela Rota goes from room to room with a small bag full of balloons, with which she creates figures for her patients, magic wands full of light and noise, and a skinny, discolored chicken that she says is her boyfriend.

Her preparation is not usual either. Laura is a professional artist, with an Argentinian accent and great self-confidence, who dedicates part of her time to working as one of the Smile Doctors at the Theodora Foundation and making the little ones have a good time. Although it is not only the children who benefit from Laura's work . "Wherever she is, she grade". It is grade on the staff sanitary, with whom she plays continuous jokes, and on the parents, who have a moment of relief when they see their daughter change the crying for a smile when the Doctor starts dancing to the rhythm of "loca, loca, loca".

When Laura leaves the red nose in the drawer until next week, she starts thinking about how to improve her training to tune in the most important - and surely most grateful - role she has ever played in her professional degree program . And those in charge of Fundación Theodora, in continuing to raise funds, always scarce. How many good people there are in the world!
