Juan Delgado (he/him) is a proud student at Pasadena City College (PCC), double majoring in natural sciences and public health with an emphasis in health equity and health disparities. His passion for addressing disparities stems from his lived experience in Los Angeles, where he witnessed firsthand the rampant injustice and unequal access to suitable health care and education within systematically affected neighborhoods. Juan interned at Huntington Health of Cedars-Sinai, where he conducted research and investigations into diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and disability equality and justice within a hospital setting. In addition, he collaborated with the nursing outreach team to identify gaps in care within communities of color. Juan has also had the opportunity to conduct research with DayOne Pasadena, a public health nonprofit organization, to identify substance use disparities and adverse outcomes within marginalized communities in the surrounding area. At PCC, Juan served as Vice Chair of Academic Affairs, where he helped create programming and events catered to bridging the equity gap that Black and African American and Latine/Hispanic students face in higher education. These experiences have emboldened and strengthened his passion. Juan is looking forward to pursuing a graduate degree in public health or epidemiology. Juan is also a 2023 Stanford AHEaD alumnus. When he is not busy, Juan enjoys playing soccer, watching films, and collecting Pokemon cards and Funko Pops.
