OP-ED, SCIENCE ARTICLES & MEDIA INTERVIEWS
I have guided almost 60 members of the CienciaPR network in the publication of more than 80 Spanish-language articles about SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19. I established a collaboration with the morning radio show Sin Tapujos on WIAC 740AM Radio, where experts from our network go on air at least once a week to discuss topics related to the pandemic from a scientific perspective. I have also coordinated or facilitated more than 70 Spanish-language radio, TV, podcast, and press interviews with scientists and experts who are members of the CienciaPR network. You can learn more about the story behind some these efforts in this NPR interview (in English). You can read, watch or listen most of the content HERE (in Spanish).
CUÍDATE, CUÍDAME CAMPAIGN
In September 2020, the Puerto Rico Public Health Trust (PRPHT), Ciencia Puerto Rico (CienciaPR), and the humanitarian organization Mercy Corps Puerto Rico, launched the "Cuídate, Cuídame" (Take care of yourself, Take care of me) campaign to encourage young adults between 20-39 years of age (who have consistently had the highest number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Puerto Rico) to adopt healthy behaviors to minimize their risk of infection. I am one of the organizers of the campaign. You can find and download all the campaign's content HERE.
