Debbie Perez, MPH
Creator and Host
Debbie has a Masters from Boston University School of Public Health, and she works for a Healthcare Tech Company based in MA. After being disconnected from her family in Puerto Rico, and losing her stepdad shortly after that – she decided to begin a journey as a Public Health Activist for Puerto Rico by starting a Podcast called Boriken. The Podcast explores the issues happening in Puerto Rico from a public health lens, by interviewing people from the island. She decided to name the podcast Boriken, because Puerto Rico is a colony, but by using the indigenous name of Boriken, she hopes everyone will join her in envisioning a future where anything is possible – a future created by and for the Puerto Rican People.
