Alexandra Rivera-González, MPH, in the
Department of Health Management and Policy, will present "Inequities in Health Care in Puerto Rico."
The multiple factors
affecting health care in Puerto Rico have rarely been studied and continue to
be unclear, especially following recent major disasters such as hurricanes,
earthquakes, and the COVID-19 pandemic. To help fill this knowledge gap, this
dissertation studies health care access and utilization in Puerto Rico and how
they are affected by system, provider, patient, and environmental factors.
