Alex De Quesada Sr. is the classic American success story. Unable to complete medical school in Castro’s Cuba, he moved to the U.S. “with $5” in his pocket and ended up at a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. In 1965, he joined the team in Gainesville that invented Gatorade and was given the task of researching “everything in the library about sweat.”   Later in life, he helped found the LifeLink, a Tampa foundation that is one of the largest organ transplant institutions in the United States. Listen to guest host and fellow Cuban Randy Batista interview Dr. De Quesada in Radio Cade’s first Spanish-language episode.
