Population Health Program Manager
Aida Martinez joined THT in March 2021 and now leads the Capital City Diabetes Collaborative (CCDC), an initiative which addresses major issues identified with treatment of diabetes in Trenton.
Prior to joining the Trenton Health Team, Aida coordinated and oversaw the national screening program at the American Kidney Fund where she focused on raising community awareness about the risk factors of kidney disease, diabetes and high blood pressure by organizing free health screenings and administering kidney health education presentations in cities throughout the United States.
She worked alongside many nursing students and health professionals to empower communities to take charge of their health and promote lifestyle changes. Community outreach and preventative education is something that Aida values in her public health work.
Aida received her Bachelor of Science degree in Community Health from the University of Maryland, College Park and is currently pursuing a masters degree in Health Communications for Social Change from CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy.
She hopes to strengthen her foundation in public health concepts and health communications to reinforce her work at THT. She is excited to join the THT team and to play an essential role in serving and empowering the Trenton community.
In her free time, she enjoys watching and playing sports, particularly football, volleyball, and softball/baseball. She loves being active and spending time outdoors.
