Kayla Mighty, MPH

I earned my Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Public Health with a minor in Human Biology from American International College, (AIC), in Springfield, Massachusetts. I work at BayState Medical Center as a Radiology Support staff. The Collective makes an effort to work with the community and build bonds with local companies in order to encourage the well being for not only women of color, but the entire BIPOC community. As a women of color myself, I think it’s important to push the narrative of empowering our community and pursuing optimal health. The Collective has shown that they are passionate about making an impact in Western Massachusetts. Which is why I currently love working with them!

Joenielle Rosado

I am a Hispanic first generation college student. Currently I have my bachelors in Public Health, and am finishing my masters from AIC (Class of 2024). I am currently working at Greater Springfield Senior Services as a Geriatric Support Services Coordinator in the SCO (Senior Care Options) department. My role is to make recommendations, coordinate, implement, and monitor contracted and community services for the purpose of improving or maintaining the member's overall health and functional status. My goal is to prevent premature institutionalization. My role in WOCHEC as an intern is working on the Racial Equity Continuum. Why the work I am doing at WOCHEC is important to me, is because it gives people a sense of being seen and heard. Additionally, it helps build awareness to those who may not recognize, that not having racial equity is a barrier. Examples of those barriers can be in power, allocation of resources, and opportunities
