I earned my B.A. in Spanish Literature and my M.D. from the University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson. I work within medical communications and continuing medical education as Executive Editor at MD Newsline. It is a joy to partner with national stakeholders in working to eliminate health disparities and advance health equity. I am grateful to the UA Department of Spanish & Portuguese for the role they played in enriching my education and advancing my proficiency in Spanish. This proficiency allows me to better communicate with and serve our nation's growing Latinx community.
