JeanPierre Coaquira, M.P.H.

Research Associate

JeanPierre conducts data analysis, research and reporting on a continuum of social and economic justice issues. He brings his passion for program sustainability, resource accessibility, and utilization of best practices to all aspects of his work. Specifically, JeanPierre leverages his knowledge of health networks, direct service care, and educational systems to provide clear and comprehensive evaluation of complex issues. Professionally, JeanPierre’s past endeavors include: analysis of cardiovascular disease trends in New York City, policy research at a Chicago-based maternal and child health non-profit, and statistical support on a pan-European mental health project. Informed by prior experience working with migrant and seasonal worker populations in the South Bay, he values the contributions of all members of our community and the significance of ensuring stakeholders have a voice.

JeanPierre holds an MPH in Epidemiology with a certificate in chronic disease from Columbia University in New York City. He obtained his BA in Biology and Society at Cornell University. His undergraduate service learning experiences in the areas of educational inequities and at-risk youth heavily influenced his public health lens. Through his academic and professional undertakings at home and abroad, he has also strengthened his Spanish-speaking skills and polished his Francophone proficiency.
