Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I am from San Lorenzo, PR, currently working on a Ph D. in Exercise and Sport Sciences. My main focus is sport pedagogy and public health. My research interests are in the areas concerning physical activity conceptions, access, and levels among Hispanics. My goal is in the future develope an intervention to increase the levels of physical activity among latinos from a culturally sensitive perspective.
