Roxanne Suarez is a program manager at 2-1-1 San Diego, and part of the Community Information Exchange (CIE) team. She and her team support the spread of a new movement in health and human services in which service providers from various sectors coordinate their efforts in providing informed and continuous care to clients and patients across agencies. Roxanne’s role as Partner Integration Manager is to develop and deliver training supports to various providers in San Diego County, ranging from clinical social workers to housing navigators and emergency food suppliers. She works in partnership with other program leaders to identify how their teams can leverage CIE technology to improve clients and patients’ access to care in a joint effort to help our community be well and thrive.
Roxanne moved to San Diego County in 2013 when she transferred from Riverside Community College to UC San Diego. There she earned her BA in Bio-Cultural Anthropology and minored in Science, Technology & Society studies. During this time, she gained an interest in public policy and ethics as they relate to persons’ access to care and overall health inequities across populations. Following her graduation in 2015, she decided to make her home here in San Diego and pursue a career in the non-profit sector.
Roxanne is excited to engage others to address social issues including public health, LGBTQ+ rights, women’s rights, and immigrant rights.
