Exploring Policy and Health in Unincorporated America
Hello. I'm Cristina.
I’m a native of the California Central Valley with roots in Merced, Madera, Fresno, and Kings Counties. As an academic researcher, a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Research Scholar & graduate of UC Berkeley, I've dedicated my academic life to exploring and researching rural communities & unincorporated communities.
Currently a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Social Welfare at UC Berkeley, I'm completing my dissertation- “The legal reproduction of infant health inequities in unincorporated communities.” This Fall 2022, I have the honor of returning to the Valley and joining the University of California, Merced as a UC Chancellor Postdoctoral Fellow.
