Jazmin Lopez, MPH, CHES
Jazmin Lopez is a program coordinator for Brighter Bites Los Angeles. Jazmin completed her Master’s in Public Health at Columbia University Mailman School for Public Health, with a focus in Health Promotion Research and Practice and is a Certified Health Promotion Specialist. While in graduate school, Jazmin became interested in early childhood development and in the critical importance of supporting families and communities in order to positively impact a child’s life.
Growing up in a low-income rural community allowed Jazmin to understand the significance of nurturing a relationship with the produce that a community eats, from germinating seeds to preparing a dish. She is especially excited to support program implementation by working closely with parents and educators. Jazmin is excited to put into practice her health promotion training and learn more about Brighter Bites’ evidence-based approach. During her free time, Jazmin enjoys spending time with loved ones, dancing, and spending time in nature.
