Hey Psi Chi! For this general meeting, we had guest speaker Dr. Monica Rosales! Dr. Rosales is a data analyst for the Department of Public Health in the Tuberculosis Program. She received her B.A. in Psychology at Cal State Dominguez Hills. Her early research involvement includes topics such as ethnic identity on college campuses and readability of health brochures. Through this research, she studied how easily people can read brochures and what education level people need to comprehend the information. For graduate school, Dr. Rosales received an M.S. and PhD in Applied Social and Health Psychology at Colorado State University. A few of her research projects include "Where's Maria/Donde Esta Maria" which is a video intervention for Latina breast cancer screening scale. She also conducted projects on marital last name selections, newspaper reporting, and injury prevention among migrant farm workers. Following earning her PhD, Dr. Rosales was involved in research fellowship. She worked at the City of Hope National Medical Center and CCARE. She worked with breast and cervical cancer survivors by providing coping interventions and health promotion activities. As previously mentioned, she now works at Tuberculosis Control Program. Her work includes analyzing data, responding to data requests from public and private entities, assuring data integrity, and data quality control. We would love to thank Dr. Rosales for sharing her experience and all the useful advice she provided to our members!
