(PHOENIX – August 19, 2019) – Esperança, a Phoenix-based nonprofit whose mission is to improve health and restore hope both locally and globally, announces Emiliano Espino as a Community Health Educator for the organization.

As a Community Health Educator, Espino will be providing health education and resources to the low-income Latino community around Maricopa County, developing education programs that are culturally appropriate, and building strong relationships with local health leaders, senior centers, and community groups.

Espino’s position with Esperança comes after a year of service in AmeriCorps as a College Transition Specialist with the Be a Leader Foundation, a nonprofit organization that increases post-secondary education access and success.

His prior experience includes working to support Tobacco Free Arizona through an internship with the Arizona Department of Health Services and developing the 2017 Annual Students Taking a New Direction (STAND) Conference.

Espino is passionate about serving the community he grew up in, and addressing the health disparities and educational access that plague low-income communities of color.

He will graduate from Arizona State University with his Bachelor’s degree in Science of Health this fall.
