Originally from Argentina, I work as an international consultant in health communication at the Pan American Health Organization (Headquarters) where I work in different communication projects and activities at the Department of Health Systems and Services.
After receiving a B.A. in Social Communication from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), I recently completed a Master’s degree in Public Health with an emphasis on Health Promotion and Policy at the University of Missouri (MU). At MU, I worked as a research assistant at Cambio Center, and volunteered at the Health Communication Research Center, where I participated in several health communication projects.
In Argentina, I worked six years at the Argentine Dentistry Association (AOA). More recently, she joined a non-profit organization, "Salud Darnos", as a health communication consultant. I am passionate about health communication, and my interests involve the study, use and design of communication strategies to inform and empower people to make healthier decisions. A
