Hello! My name is Diana Lopez, and I am so excited to be part of the MHO board! I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles and am the daughter to two hard working immigrant parents. I was the first in my family to pursue higher education and graduated from UC Berkeley. I knew I wanted to play an active role improving the health and quality of care that low-income communities like mine receive and was thrilled to be accepted into the Drew/UCLA Medical Program, whose mission aligned with my goals and allowed me to serve those in my community. I am passionate about immigrant health, advocating for my patients, and increasing the number of minority physicians. Outside of medicine I enjoy running, watching Netflix, and spending time with my husband.
