Enrique Galarza

Community Health Instructor

What education or prior experiences do you have related to community health?

Previously, I worked as an HIV Tester within our Know Your Status program. Our program provided mobile, rapid testing HIV services to at risk individuals on the west and south side of Chicago. In addition to free HIV tests, we also provided condoms and hygiene kits. I am currently finishing up my Masters in Public Health from Northeastern Illinois University.

What about your work inspires you?

I take pride in the fact that our organization as a whole is committed to serving our community and reducing health disparities among disadvantaged groups.

What's a fun fact about yourself?

In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with friends or playing video games.
