Lucia is a second-year medical student at the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine in Meridian, ID. She received her MPH degree with an emphasis in Epidemiology from the University of California, Davis School of Medicine and a BS in Biology from the University of Redlands, California. She is passionate about women’s reproductive rights, women’s representation in medicine, providing quality healthcare to underserved populations, and preventative health. She’s a devoted member in her regional AMWA branch, participating in various service projects. This past year she independently organized an event which brought the National Marrow Donor Program and “Be the Match” program to her medical school and local community to increase the registry’s national enrollment. She was selected to be part of her State advocacy group to participate in state-wide events and to assist in advocating for more inclusive healthcare legislation. She also is involved in preventative cardiovascular imaging research. Outside of medicine, she enjoys traveling, hiking, white water rafting, and snow skiing.
