Marleny Huerta-Apanco

Policy Fellow

Marleny is a 2017 graduate of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University. Though she was born and raised in Albert Lea, Minnesota, her parents and roots lie in Maltrata, Veracruz, Mexico. She is a first-generation college graduate and now a first-generation graduate student in the Master of Public Health Community Health Promotion program at the University of Minnesota. Her passions include health equity among Latinx populations with hopes to evaluate, intervene, and advocate for underserved populations in Minnesota. Before MCLA, she worked on developing social media for Community Dental Care, did work in higher education as an admissions counselor, and was heavily involved with women’s issues as a Resident Assistant and EMT during her undergraduate degree. Marleny has traveled to over 13 countries, and always looks forward to warmer weather
