I received my DO from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific (now Western University) in Pamona, California, and have planted deep roots in the Tucson Community since then. I completed my residency training in Family and Community Medicine here at The University of Arizona, College of Medicine – Tucson, and grew into leadership positions such as FM Clinical Medical Director, FM Residency Director, Assistant Dean for GME SC, and as of 2017, Deputy Dean of Diversity and Inclusion for the UACOMT. My academic and clinical careers have focused on community engagement, building pipelines to health careers, and the healthcare needs of the underserved. In my time as a residency program director I developed several interprofessional programs providing prenatal care and well child exams for un- or underinsured patients. The programs engaged learners from medical schools and residency programs as well as the colleges of pharmacy, nursing, and public health, where many learners were in pursuit of careers in medical education. I am passionate about increasing medical care opportunities for disadvantaged patients though the development of rural residency programs, clinics in underserved communities, and the recruitment of service providers who are dedicated to these communities. In my role as Assistant Dean for GME, I developed a Spanish Language/Health Care Disparities Distinction Track which was the catalyst for a Pathways to Success – High School Student Health Career exposure, engaging an average of 150 inner city high school students annually. The Distinction Track not only trains residents to become Bilingual Spanish Providers, but also sponsored forums to raise the awareness of current and future medical providers regarding the impact of health care disparities on clinical practices. In my current role as the Deputy Dean of Diversity and Inclusion for UACOMT, my commitment continues to stand for the provision of health care to the underserved, for diversity and inclusive excellence and the growth and development of URM students, residents, fellows and faculty.
