Guest Speaker: Griselle Vanessa Rodriguez, Project Coordinator, National Family Voices
Over the past six years, Vanessa has worked at Delaware Family Voices various projects
across the organization connecting families of children with special health care needs
with emotional support, services, and information. Having a child diagnosed with
DiGeorge Syndrome, Congestive Heart Failure and ASD has made her an enthusiastic
advocate for family engagement and partnership with professionals while navigating the
systems and services for the well-being of their children. Her on-the-ground advocacy
with families gives Ms. Rodriguez a unique perspective on how families access care and
potential barriers that may impede access and impact health outcomes. Ms. Rodriguez
has over eight years of experience working with the Hispanic and Latino communities,
promoting community engagement by supporting emerging leaders through training,
mentorship, and advocacy.
