Daniela Delgado is a pre-medical student majoring in Neuroscience and International Studies. She has spent the last two years leading a community-based research project called PROGRESA, in Homestead, FL, promoting the educational achievement of farmworker children. The project is under the Community and Educational Well-being Research Center, where Daniela works closely with doctoral students, a community organization and community members to guide her research. She mentions this has been one of her most enriching experiences. In Summer 2012, Daniela participated in a similar research program at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Disparities Solutions Center. She is also a Miami Commitment student and has worked for the past four years in the Office of Student Employment.
Daniela’s experience also includes long-term leadership roles in student organizations, including international work in the Dominican Republic through Medical Students in Action, and extensive regional and national conference planning and student mentoring through the Latino Medical Student Association. She is also a Patient Navigator at the St. John Bosco Clinic, a free clinic in Miami, where she has gained substantial exposure to her future medical profession. As a current senior, Daniela has been accepted to medical school and is planning to attend Harvard Medical School in Fall 2013.
