David Emmanuel Paz

I was born in Uruguay but I have lived in many places across the U.S. & overseas over the years. This has given me a great opportunity to get to know people of many cultures, convincing me that the more you know people the less reason there is for misunderstandings or prejudice. I continued the family travelling tradition by doing my undergraduate studies in Hawaii and later attending Ross University. While at Ross I participated in AMSA fairs, and was a member of the EMS team. I also enjoyed participating in the Salybia Mission Project and being the Inter-organization Liaison. Presently, I serve as the Healthy Athletes Director for Special Olympics Arizona, overseeing 7 medical disciplines. I am also appointed by Special Olympics International as the Health Promotion Director for the State of Arizona. Healthy Athletes ® is the largest global healthcare provider for people with intellectual disabilities.
