Ricardo Garay began working for the Migrant Clinicians Network in February of 2009. He is currently responsible for the management of Health Network. Health Network is designed to provide patient navigation to mobile patients inside the U.S and around the world. Up to this point, the program has worked with patients from over 70 countries. Once a patient is enrolled, Health Network will manage continuity of care for a range of chronic health conditions.

Ricardo was born in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. His mother managed a pharmacy called FarMax and his dad worked for a pharmaceutical company; Growing up in Honduras enabled Ricardo to be exposed to a wide range of circumstances relating to inequality and access to health care. This environment also provided him with the foundation for his interest in public health and other social justice issues. This backdrop still continues to play an active role when it relates to his job at the Migrant Clinicians Network.

His previous experience includes working at FarMax, managing a call center at Admissions Office at Abilene Christian University, and managing Educational accounts for Apple Inc. As Health Network manager Ricardo has presented at all annual Migrant Stream Forums, provided Promotora training for the Livestrong Foundation, and facilitated international agreements of cooperation with various countries in Latin America among many others. His goal remains to grow the program and serve as bridge for the migrant patients around the world.

Ricardo also serves as a board member for Cooperation Texas, an Austin based non-profit committed to the creation of sustainable jobs through the development, support and promotion of worker-owned cooperatives and volunteers at a number of other organizations in Austin. As Austin grows, so does his interest in social disparities and other determinants. “My job at MCN has provided me with a beautiful and unique opportunity to address equality through healthcare justice. Working with patients from around the world has enabled me to see a world that is not only diverse but also multi-dimensional and incredibly dynamic”. Outside of work, Ricardo enjoys cycling and kayaking. His other interests include: live music, Latin American literature and indie cinema.
