Current Public-Health Related Activities

I’m a Public Health Advisor with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). I have worked on efforts to strengthen our public health system, both domestically and internationally. I have supported CDC’s efforts against the Ebola and Zika virus, and managed public health programs at a state level. My journey in Public Health started by conducting a study on obesity of Latinos in the Bronx, and has taken me to the U.S. – Mexican border to research the deaths of undocumented border crossers. I hope to use my experience and passion for Public Health to support the mission of CPHI.
