Raquel is a medical student at the Autonomous University of the State of Morelos (UAEM) in Mexico.
Before she came to Kansas City, Raquel was collaborating in the bi-national project e-Decídete: Mobile cessation support for Latino smokers in Mexico that KUMC has with the INSP – Instituto Nacional de Salud Pública (Nacional Institute of Public Health). She helped in creating the text-message library that this program will send to Mexican smokers.
Raquel is here as an international student in the department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at JUNTOS. She is taking part in research projects such as the smoking cessation program for Latinos in Kansas, and continues to contribute to the
e-Decídete project in Mexico.
She is excited with the opportunity to be a part of this research team and to be working with the Latino community here in Kansas.
