Julieta Kusnir, MPH

Julieta Kusnir, MPH loves being in the classroom and learning with her San Francisco State and City College students. She has taught at both institutions and is lucky to be able to build relationships with students as a coordinator at SFCC. Before joining Metro, for five years, Julieta provided media advocacy trainings across the country for Berkeley Media Studies Group.  She has also contributed to bilingual radio programming in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2000. Her radio pieces have aired on NPR, KCBS, and PRI among other media outlets. Julieta continues to produce and host segments of La Raza Chronicles on KPFA radio with an emphasis on health issues. Julieta's long-time commitment to addressing health inequities, particularly those in the Latino community, drew her back to the university to complete a master's in public health. Her areas of interest in the public health field include the media's impact on civic engagement, as well as popular education strategies. Julieta continues to provide trainings for KPFA radio's apprenticeship program. In 2008, she received an Ethnic Media Health Fellowship through The California Endowment. You can listen to her program at Julieta was born in Mexico City and grew up here in the Bay Area. Her mother is from Mexico and her father is from Argentina which inspires her to highlight stories on the radio and in the classroom that show how U.S. policies have pushed immigrants from their homes.
