Daphne Delgado is a Cuban-American raised in Miami. She received a B.A. in cultural anthropology, with a minor in biology, from Duke University in 2008. During her undergraduate career, Daphne was a founding member of both the Latino Pre-Health Society and the Duke Cuban-American Student Association (CASA). Prior to graduate school, Daphne spent two years at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network – a non-profit patient-based advocacy organization – where she managed grassroots advocacy volunteers in strategic congressional districts. She also coordinated all logistics for the organization’s annual Advocacy Day, a 500-person event where advocates from across the country gather in Washington, D.C.

Daphne completed her Master of Public Health (MPH) in health behavior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013. As a graduate student, Daphne focused her research and work experience on health disparities, cancer, chronic disease, and tobacco control. She was actively involved in the Minority Health Conference, the largest and oldest student-run health conference in the country, as the Broadcast Co-Chair. Additionally, she was a Public Health Counselor for the Student Health Action Coalition (SHAC) free clinic, the oldest student-run clinic in the country.

As the Health Graduate Fellow, Daphne seeks to build on her skills and experiences to gain a better understanding of how current health policies affect Latinos and other minorities. She aims to ensure that traditionally underserved communities are meaningfully included in the federal health policymaking process.
