Project Manager - Consortium Core
Brendaly Rodriguez is the Project Manager of the Community Engagement and Cultural Diversity Program of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) at University of Miami. A 1997 Fulbright Communication Scholar, she received a BA from University of Puerto Rico, and an MA from Arizona State University. For close to 20 years, she has coordinated and managed CDC and NIH-funded projects and other large-scale programs on Hispanic/Latino communities, language and culture issues, public health, social marketing, health communication, and evaluation practice. She is also frequently sought after as a presenter and consultant on these issues. Among her leadership roles, she is member of the HHS/OMH National Steering Committee for Promotores de Salud, is the past Vice President of the Latino Caucus of the American Public Health Association (LC-APHA), and is Co-President of the Florida Community Health Workers Coalition (FCHWC). As such, she led a statewide coalition that ultimately resulted in Florida becoming the 7th state to develop a Community Health Worker (CHW) certification program and a training module on patient centered outcomes research for CHWs and promotores de salud.
