No individual, regardless of their political, economic, racial/ethnic, geographic, or gender background, should lack access to proper healthcare. It is our responsibility to develop solutions that reflect the needs of the world's most vulnerable.
Born in Venezuela, Gabriela Romero grew up in Lake City, Florida. She is fiercely passionate about working alongside marginalized populations to develop sustainable solutions to improve health outcomes, especially related to issues facing women and girls. Prior to joining GHC, Gaby served as a Maternal and Child Health Volunteer in Rwanda with the U.S. Peace Corps. Gaby's interest in health inequities first began following a service-learning trip to Panama during her sophomore year of college. Following this trip, Gaby served as a project manager for a SAMHSA funded state-wide grant focused on youth suicide prevention, as well as working as a health educator with migrant workers and refugees, and later as a volunteer advocate for survivors of sexual assault. In her free time, Gaby enjoys learning about new cultures, photography, and playing with her dog, Simba. Global Health Corp's emphasis on collaboration will ensure that our efforts to improve global health in Uganda can continue long after the fellowship ends.
