Is biomedical engineering a good way to help people?

Hi! So, I'm in my first semester of college at a small community college currently on a path towards a Health Sciences degree. I chose this because I am lost in what I want to do! I have always enjoyed math and science, and I want to help in the medical field in some way because I want the satisfaction of knowing I'm helping people somehow. Would you consider Biomedical Engineering a great path for me to pursue? Obviously I would have to transfer somewhere bigger that offers engineering.
