Bromiley, 73, has been practicing medicine in Brownsville since moving here in 1973. Back then, there was only one hospital and she became one of three pediatricians in the city. Bromily started the Brownsville Pediatric Association several years later as a joint venture with her husband Arthur Granger Bromiley, a trained microbiologist who later became an emeritus member of the American Society of Microbiology.
While Bromiley has served the Brownsville community with pride, she also has worked in other parts of the world. Shortly after finishing medical Prada Mens Backpack

For Bromiley, retirement means more time to exercise and focus on her family and her health. She said she plans to sell her medical clinic, a place that has generated memories for many of her long time patients.
"It was like walking through a textbook of medicine," Bromiley said. "I saw people that had smallpox, cholera, diphtheria, abdominal tuberculosis, Vitamin A deficiencies of the eye."
What followed was an eight year stay in the African countries of Kenya and Tanzania, places that she said were beautiful but had areas with high infant mortality and few pediatricians.

Garza is the office manager at Bromiley's clinic and has always brought her children there. Her four children and five grandchildren have been coming to Bromiley since 1973, shortly after Garza's first son, Gino, was born. As Bromiley's April 19 retirement date draws nears, Garza and others in the community are sad to see her go.

She attended Vanderbilt University, Stanford and the University of Tennessee Medical School and went on to practice medicine around the world.
