Soy médica, en 1999 fundé Surcos, una OSC que trabaja desde la perspectiva de la salud colectiva y desde ese momento estudio y oriento mis acciones a este campo: la salud entendida como un emergente social y político. Por otra parte, desde hace dos años también fundé un Observatorio de Salud. Actualmente también me desempeño como asesora en el Ministerio de Salud de la Nación Argentina.
