Background & Experience
In Victoria Partida's current role, she coordinates the Women's Project Focus Groups. She also supports the outreach efforts of the 2020 Census. Victoria's previous experience includes working at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center as the Spanish Coordinator for the Chronic Disease Self Management Program (CDSMP) and as a Health Educator at Federally Qualified Health Centers on the subjects of breastfeeding and chronic diseases. She also serves on her neighborhood association board, where she coordinates community-building activities to encourage civic engagement. She was appointed to the City of San Jose Housing and Community Development Commission by Councilmember Maya Esparza in 2019. She has a passion for working with underserved communities, addressing the root causes of health disparities and advocacy. Victoria's love for public health stems from her parents' struggles with diabetes and being monolingual speakers. Their challenges influenced her to be heavily invested in the welfare for everyone who lacks the general knowledge, resources, and access to proper healthcare. Her goal is to bring patients to the table and create policies that create a stronger healthcare system that addresses the needs of communities.
