Ana Ramos received her Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2010. Ana worked as a Research Assistant for the Community Partners in Care (CPIC) study led by principal investigator Dr. Kenneth Wells.
Community Partners in Care (CPIC) is a collaborative research project of community and academic partners working together to learn the best way to reduce the burden that depression places on our communities and other vulnerable populations. We work in the communities of South Los Angeles (SPA 6) and Hollywood-Metro LA (SPA 4). CPIC was developed out of five years of collaborative work on how to address depression in our communities, on many years of prior research on how to improve depression care in primary care settings, and on extensive efforts to address health disparities through community-partnered initiatives.
