Maria Rivas

Program Specialist

MR@PHAdvocates.org

I am a Public Health Advocate because I believe in uplifting communities that lack the resources to flourish physically and mentally. As a Mexican immigrant, I have a deep appreciation for the diversity that exists in California and in my region. Equally, I am committed to addressing structural systems and poor policy decisions that fail to address health disparities in under-resourced zip codes. Being a Public Health Advocate means giving back to the people in my community of South Sacramento and the community at-large to ensure they not only survive, but thrive.
