I became Health Quality and Patient Security Coordinator of the Social Security Health Services Provision Department in July. Previously I was Vice-Minister of Health of Panama from July 2016 to June 2019. I was Director for the Provision of Health Services of the Ministry of Health from 1999 to 2004. At that time I took a Master of Medical Management at Tulane University, School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and I had the opportunity to visit all the health regions in Panama, including remote areas, with indigenous populations and scarce health centers. I saw the importance of the community and health determinants in the health of each person. It is not just personal lifestyles that influences the health of a person, but also the environment, education, and poverty. But even in these public health positions, I continued seeing ambulatory internal medicine patients at my clinic at San Fernando Hospital.
