Ms. Monroy is a Lecturer and Program Manager in the Department of Health Promotion Sciences at the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. The primary focus of Ms. Monroy’s professional career is community led participatory research and action(CBPR) to develop interventions to improve health in underserved communities.

The work is based on community assessments that identify the relevant barriers and assets to develop culturally and community tailored interventions. The methodology ensures that the intervention builds on community assets, addresses gaps and is community and culturally relevant. These projects have had local, regional and national foci.

Her work with the National REACH Coalition focuses on supporting national health equity efforts through technical assistance and advocacy.
