Rincon, Rodolfo

School of Medicine
Family & Community Medicine

As a physician who graduated from UNAM in Mexico, my hands-on experience includes the practice of family and emergency medicine at the Regional General Hospital in Nuevo Laredo for over 15 years. Upon completion of my MPH, new areas of interest developed to include environmental health, public health, behavior modification, and health disparities. Teaching, mentoring, and seeking research opportunities in these areas of concentration have been an important part of my career. In addition, part of my professional work experience includes managing and coordinating community health promotion and health education programs, grant writing, teaching clinical skills for medical assistants, and translation of documents and conferences.
