Ep 83: Connecting Science with Community in Puerto Rico & Experiencing Microaggressions with Dr. Mónica Feliú Mójer from Award-Winning Aquí Nos Cuidamos Paseo Podcast: Sharing Puerto Rican Stories

    • Society & Culture

Mónica Feliú Mójer, Ph.D. joins the show today. She is a scientist, science communicator & project lead for the Aquí Nos Cuidamos, which is an award-winning community engagement project that promotes COVID-19 prevention and the well-being of vulnerable and marginalized communities in Puerto Rico through culturally relevant multimedia education, community engagement, science and solidarity.

We discuss her work on the Aquí Nos Cuidamos project, the realities communities in Puerto Rico face when trying to gain access to life saving information from the science community, and how she has navigated microaggressions as a Boricua in the science field.

In the first half of the show, we break down the latest Puerto Rican News Headlines, including:

Bad Bunny's latest album, Un Verano Sin Ti
Puerto Rico covid cases on the rise
PR Gov. Pedro Pierluisi calling for the resignation of two Puerto Rico mayors
& More!
