Rolando Del Pozo

Degree: B.S. - Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, UC Davis (2016)

Area of Emphasis: Health Education and Health Policy

Practicum: TBD

About Rolando: As an undergrad at UC Davis, he was exposed to many health issues through Chicanos for Health Education (CHE) and Joan Viteri Memorial Clinic (JVMC). Within the clinic, he was part of the Health Education Committee, responsible for discussing various health topics such as nutrition and stress management with organizations in the surrounding community. As a whole, his experiences showed him how few Spanish-speaking health professionals there are and how many patients require bilingual professionals. With an MPH degree, he hopes to bring awareness of health issues to members of the Latino population.
