The Racial Health Equity Intern Is On Board 


Where we live affects our health. While San Mateo County has some of the healthiest Californians, there are disparities in health outcomes by many factors – place, income, race, etc. We recently brought on a summer graduate intern to help us better understand the root causes of racial health inequities. Please join us in welcoming Eduardo Castañeda to the team! After attaining his BA from Washington State University, he moved to the Bay Area to pursue a masters in ethnic studies with a concentration in public policy at San Jose State University. In the future, he is interested in pursuing a law degree to work on interests such as food insecurity, homelessness, immigration, income inequality, and access to health care and medicine. He also currently serves as a reservist engineer in the US Army. In his off time, he enjoys playing mariachi, running, playing volleyball and soccer. Feel free to drop a line to say hi and learn about his research!
