Officially | Oficialmente: Estefania Martinez Limo, MPH!!!!

馃尰Hi everyone yes, that's me: the result of immigration. The result of hard work and resilience and the results of my mom sacrificing everything for me to be here in this country today.

After an amazing 2 years, I have graduated from The  @gwpublichealth - Milken Institute School of Public Health with my concentration in Epidemiology!

Feeling grateful, blessed, and proud of all I have accomplished as a first generation Latina immigrant. More importantly, I'm proud of all the things I was able to accomplish inside and outside of school. Joining clubs, doing fellowship, volunteering, participating in research and holding a leadership position all helped shape my college experience and I leave with great memories. Thank you to everyone I met along the way!
This is only the beginning.
Congratulations to the class of 2023!

馃尀Hola a todos, s铆, ese soy yo: el resultado de la inmigraci贸n. El resultado del trabajo duro y la resiliencia y los resultados de que mi madre sacrificara todo para que yo estuviera aqu铆 en este pa铆s hoy.

隆Despu茅s de 2 a帽os incre铆bles, me he graduado de la Escuela de Salud P煤blica de la Universidad George Washington- Instituto Milken con mi concentraci贸n en Epidemiolog铆a!

Me siento agradecida, bendecida y orgullosa de todo lo que he logrado como inmigrante latina de primera generaci贸n.

M谩s importante a煤n, estoy orgulloso de todas las cosas que pude lograr dentro y fuera de la escuela. Unirse a clubes, hacer compa帽erismo, ser voluntario, participar en la investigaci贸n y mantener una posici贸n de liderazgo ayud贸 a dar forma a mi experiencia universitaria y me voy con grandes recuerdos. 隆Gracias a todos los que conoc铆 en el camino!
Esto es solo el principio.
隆Enhorabuena a la clase de 2023!

Hi everyone!馃尰
The issue of gun violence is complex and deeply rooted in our culture, which is why many public health organizations, advocate for a comprehensive public health approach to addressing this growing crisis. Public health professionals view gun violence as a preventable issue that affects not only individuals but also entire communities. They believe that reducing gun violence requires a multi-pronged approach that involves addressing the root causes of violence, such as poverty and social inequality, as well as implementing evidence-based policies and programs that can reduce access to firearms and promote community safety. 

I personally think that gun violence in public health requires a comprehensive approach from multiple disciplines such as sociology, medicine, and psychology to better understand and address the root causes of gun violence because there are various factors that contribute to the use and misuse of firearms. 

隆Hola a todos!馃尀
El problema de la violencia armada es complejo y est谩 profundamente arraigado en nuestra cultura, raz贸n por la cual muchas organizaciones de salud p煤blica, abogan por un enfoque integral de salud p煤blica para abordar esta creciente crisis. Los profesionales de la salud p煤blica ven la violencia armada como un problema prevenible que afecta no solo a las personas sino tambi茅n a comunidades enteras. Adem谩s, debemos centrarnos en examinar los valores culturales y las creencias en torno a la posesi贸n de armas y la violencia armada, y c贸mo estas creencias dan forma a las actitudes y comportamientos en torno a las armas.

Personalmente, creo que la violencia con armas de fuego en la salud p煤blica requiere un enfoque integral de m煤ltiples disciplinas como la sociolog铆a, la medicina y la psicolog铆a para comprender y abordar mejor las causas fundamentales de la violencia con armas de fuego porque hay varios factores que contribuyen al uso y abuso de las armas de fuego.

I recently had the opportunity to present my research at my first in-person research day poster presentation. It was a great experience and I had the chance to meet and hear about the research of many fellow students.

I share my research on an independent study I done for Las Ganas fellowship. My research was on 鈥淣eeds assessment 2019 in the department of Loreto in Peru鈥.

It was inspiring to see the work being done by my peers and I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my own research.  #justanepidemiologist
