Evlyn serves as an AmeriCorps National Health Corps Florida member, a PrEP Outreach Coordinator for CAN Community Health, and is serving her first year on the Volusia/Flagler County World AIDS Day committee. With her public health and human biology foundation from Cornell University, her work has largely focused on with disease prevention among vulnerable populations, in the United States and Latin America, who often experience poorer health outcomes due to inequities in systemic structures.
