My name is Nayeli and I am a returning coordinator for the
Diversity in Medicine (DIM) 2013-2014 program. Besides being an
undergraduate, I’ve participated in the Ballet Folklórico de UCI
organization on campus since my first year, and have also had the
opportunity to network with a group of exceptional students to form UCI’s
first ever Mariachi Organization.
I hope to have a career in healthcare to serve the Latino community and
have been conducting research in the Madison Park neighborhood in Santa
Ana with one of our very own DIM directors, Mr. José Rea. The projects in
the community have varied from planning the community’s annual Walk-A-Thon
in the summer, to leading discussions on diabetes education brought to us
by the American Diabetes Association (ADA).
It has been a privilege to work with such dedicated and ambitious
coordinators, and I thank them, along with our supportive Directors, for
continuing the DIM effort.
