My focus is on developing research and evaluation projects with community based organizations in order to better document and inform the work they do in benefit of the different Latino Communities in Minnesota and the United States. There are several indicators showing that we still have to work hard in towards improving the living conditions of people with Latino heritage in the state, which, comparatively speaking rank as better than most other areas of the county.

Collaborating in the creation of multi-disciplinary teams that could bring their expertise and knowledge to support better outcomes in education among Latino students, and to expand opportunities for them to grew in the professional arena. These are our future medical, engineering and academic professionals needed in positions of influence in Minnesota.

A great opportunity to interact with colleagues who are in a position to contribute towards change as sector leaders. These leaders can think beyond mainstream ideologies and are willing to collaborate in making of our community a better one.

It matters to me that we are living in a society that has been built on the basis of equality and equity, yet the evidence continues to reveal great inequities based on racial and ethnic identities.
