Hello everyone my name is Alexandra Perez and I am a MiMentor Health Equity Fellow. In The Stress South Central Carries blog, I explore the intersectionality of stressors impacting low-income predominantly Latine communities and the negative health outcomes they experience. I strive to build community around the most effective coping skills to handle these stressors.

A Place Called Home

“I do not want to be a voice for the voiceless, I want to eliminate the barriers that keep people without fancy degrees out of important conversations.”

“The power of community to create health is far greater than any physician, clinic or hospital.”

“High doses of adversity not only affect brain structure and function, they affect the developing immune system, developing hormonal systems, and even the way our DNA is read and transcribed.”

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
