Background & Experience
In Victoria Partida's current role, she is the lead for health coverage programs, such as Medi-cal and Patient Coverage Access Program. Victoria is also the Health Educator for the Every Woman Counts Program, where she supports Community Health Workers in four different counties. 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 breastfeeding and chronic diseases. She 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 of everyone who lacks general knowledge, resources, and access to proper healthcare. Her goal is to bring patients to the table and create a stronger healthcare system that addresses communities' needs.
