Amparo Pastor, RN-MLC
I was born in Miami of Cuban immigrants in poverty and the poorest neighborhood, never seeing anyone attend college.
I witnessed Hispanic needs, lack of resources, treated by physicians who lacked understand of our communities, culture and didn’t appreciate their “accents.” Transplanted nurses are meeting roadblocks becoming nurses here.
I hope to assist them in accessing healthcare and screening, resources and education.
It would be an honor to perform the duties this position requires.
