Field Health Network Associate

Migrant Clinicians Network


Brenda Ramirez, MCN’s Field Health Network Associate in McAllen, Texas, is an experienced case manager. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley, she joined MCN's Health Network team. Working directly with certified nurse midwives at migrant shelters in Texas, she specializes in prenatal and postpartum case management, helping pregnant migrants enroll in MCN’s Health Network program. 

Bilingual in Spanish and English, Ramirez works directly with Health Network patients at immigration shelters, providing culturally contextual support and enrolling the patients in Health Network. After the patients leave the shelter, she provides bilingual and culturally contextual case management as they travel to their destination states, assisting in making appointments and navigating the complex health care system that can be a barrier to care for migrant patients. By getting to know many of our patients more directly, she helps the rest of the Health Network team stay aware of the most pressing concerns and issues migrants face when entering the country, helping the team keep their finger on the pulse of border communities and migrants. 

Ramirez hopes to attend graduate school in the future for counseling. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and family, their four dogs, being outdoors, and listening to a true crime podcast.
