About Tatiana: As an undergraduate student, Tatiana studied Exercise Biology at UC Davis which sparked her interest in public health and utilizing exercise as a mechanism for disease prevention. Tatiana hopes to decrease many of the health care disparities that exist for underserved communities by increasing awareness about chronic diseases such as hypertension and Type II diabetes. She hopes to better understand the epidemiology of these diseases to teach underserved communities how exercise can be used to treat and prevent the secondary complications that these common diseases can cause.
