Vigil, Lucretia Graduate/Research Assistant

Lucretia R. Vigil is currently a Masters in Public Health (MPH) student at the University of New Mexico College of Population Health (UNM COPH). She is native to New Mexico and lives in the South Valley with her family. She graduated from Rio Grande High School, and wants to work in that community once she is done with her studies. She received two bachelors of science degrees for Biology and Psychology during her undergraduate studies, while competing as a 400m sprinter for the Lobos Track and Field Team. Her current area of study includes a broad area of topics including violence prevention, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), historical trauma, and behavioral/mental health services, and the stigma surrounding the use of these types of services. She plans to apply to continue her studies after she completes her MPH either in an MD or PhD program. She hopes to effect social change later in her life either as a clinician or research scientist, and plans to be actively involved in the NM legislature.
