    Before entering the program:

    Before entering the MPH program at MEZCOPH, I was working as a research assistant at the Social Risks and Resilience Factor Lab at the Department of Psychology and completing my undergraduate program.

    Why did you choose public health?

    During my undergraduate year, I took a public health course and became interested in learning about health disparities in different populations, which cultivated my interest to promote health equities in my community. Also, I believe that empowering and serving underserved communities are important qualities to progress towards to health equity

    Why did you choose MEZCOPH?

    I chose MEZCOPH because I was drawn to the program's focus on advocating for social justice and serving underserved communities in Arizona. I also like that the program has numerous local and global research collaborations.

    Public health interests:

    Behavioral Health, Health Disparities, Health Promotion, Planning and Evaluation, School Health, Tobacco and Substance Abuse


    Evaluation of AzMAT Mentors Program to Increase Medicated Assisted Treatment Services for Opioid-Use Disorder in Arizona.

    Interests/hobbies outside of school:

    Listening to music/podcasts, reading, journaling, socializing with friends, and traveling

    Tip for future students:

    First, my advice to future students is to take care of their mental health and their well-being. The second advice is to build relationships with friends, faculty, and staff at MEZCOPH. MEZCOPH has wonderful resources, which I recommend taking advantage of them. Lastly, get involved in the community and MEZCOPH.
