Sebastian Del Pazo was sworn in as dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the Catholic University of Santa Fe.

Regarding the demands of this new position, he reminded her that “every moment and time has its opportunity and its difficulty. They are two sides of the same coin. I understand that the opportunity lies in the vigor and strength of this young, but great academic unit that you have to lead; and, I see its difficulty, in how this significant and sudden growth forces us to often deal with what is urgent and not what is important, where, those of us who have the responsibility of the government, many times “We must also carry on ‘our weak shoulders’, not only our weaknesses but also the weaknesses over those who govern. This requires us to have a lot of empathy and love for our neighbors.”
