Leaders in Hispanic Healthcare
It is my greatest honor to be the President of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses- Phoenix Chapter. This has been a goal I have had since 2017 when I first joined NAHN as a nursing student. I will strive to promote advocacy, educational, and professional opportunities for Hispanic nurses. I was welcomed into NAHN with open arms by strangers who became my mentors and are now like family. I truly believe in giving back to the community and ensuring our community feels a sense of belonging in nursing. To ensure representation of your goals, I will empower our community by making connections in our community. As the President of NAHN-Phoenix, I promise to always put the interest of NAHN first and to be exemplary of our values. Gracias a ustedes! NAHN wouldn't be what it is today without the incredible work of our Board of Directors and of course our membership!

The Most Important Factor in Clinical Research is YOU!
Every medicine we take, medical device we use, and therapy we receive, was created with the help of people who took part in a research study. Their participation helped find treatments and cures to improve health outcomes.
