My name is Agustín (Auggie) and I'm registered as Community Health Worker at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. I'm very enthusiastic about helping you to learn about health and patient advocacy.

I'm currently offering two related subjects in this platform:
1. Spanish Language for Healthcare Providers and Health Administrators
2. Health Coaching (and Patient Advocacy) for Individuals and Caregivers

My professional training in healthcare started at Harvard University by studying Spanish Language. This education in combination with other requirements allowed me to successfully apply for the National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters. If you are either a healthcare provider or a health administrator seeking to improve your cultural competencies by learning Spanish language, then rest assured that the level of command I exercise over that language will help you to become clinically accurate and socially welcoming.

I'll be graduating from the Patient Advocacy post-baccalaureate certification program offered by UCLA in 2019. If you are a caregiver requiring information to support a loved one; if you are suffering a specific condition that requires a positive health-related behavior change; if you need to know how to handle the logistics of the healthcare system; then you may find very beneficial my instruction.

I have worked for over two decades in settings that include clinical, community and faith-based organizations and I'm ready to work one-on-one with you.

Thank you, Agustín
