She is a Ph.D. candidate at the UA with a major in Mexican American Studies and a minor in Public Health and a member of the prestigious fellowship program of the Mexican National Council of Science and Technology (CONACyT). While participating in the UA Summer Program “A Learning Research Experience” in 2008, María José conducted research about immigrant women and their sexual and reproductive health under the mentorship of Dr. Anna Ochoa O’Leary, leading to her desire to continue graduate studies. María José currently volunteers with the “Tucson Postpartum Depression Coalition” to promote awareness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. She, along with other volunteers, recently helped the Coalition secure a grant to develop a program to reach Spanish-speaking women. Originally from Culiacan, Sinaloa, María José received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa.
