Hello! My name is Roberto Mercado and I’m the Department of Public Health's Student Assistant!

I’m a third-year Public Health student with a minor in Journalism. Up until my time here in Santa Clara, I was born and lived my entire life in Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico. My interest in Public Health is addressing the health concerns of disenfranchised communities. On campus, I am involved with the Multi-Cultural Center’s Student Organizations and conduct Latino mental health research with Dr. Alice Villatoro. I enjoy hanging out with friends and playing games online during my free time. Please feel free to stop by the Department of Public Health in Alumni Science 259 and say hi!
