Cynthia Molina brings over ten years of experience in organizational development specifically within the nonprofit sector. Prior to joining HealthTeamWorks, Cynthia worked as a Clinic Operations Manager for a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) in Lafayette, Colorado where she provided operation site leadership and worked closely with the operations and clinical teams to obtain various recognitions including NCQA Diabetes Recognition. Her role in operations site leadership allowed her to maximize the collaboration between the operations and clinical teams to improve the overall patient experience and health outcomes of their patient population. As a first-generation immigrant from Mexico, Cynthia has developed a passion to reduce health disparities among Latinx patients. During her time at the FQHC, Cynthia worked in various projects that improved patient education for the Latinx population, specifically around chronic conditions. Some of the activities included educational sessions with providers that addressed culturally appropriate care. Topics included cultural beliefs among some Latinx patients around causes of illness (for example, luck or behavior) to identifying healthy foods within Latin American cuisine. Cynthia also collaborated with various community organizations in Boulder County to bring greater awareness of challenges with Latinx community around access to healthcare as built partnerships with local non-profits serving their patients. Prior to employment with the FQHC, Cynthia also worked for non-profit in Longmont Colorado, to facilitate communication and understanding within the community to improve social justice, education and economic status for the Latins and non-Latinx members of the community. Cynthia organized various community meetings with non-profit leaders, government officials and other agencies to solicit input on issues affecting the Latinx Community including successfully hosting a symposium as part of a campaign to educate voting citizens on a bi-partisan legislation that would allow undocumented high school graduates to pay in-state tuition in the state of Colorado (DREAM Act).
Cynthia received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Colorado in Boulder and a Master's in Nonprofit Management from Regis University in Denver.
