Chief medical correspondent, Univision
A cardiologist and a longtime advocate of heart health, Dr. Juan Rivera has brought his expertise to bear as a leading voice for underserved Hispanic communities. In doing so, he became one of the country’s most trusted medical professionals.
With all sorts of roadblocks to accessing routine preventive care emerging during the COVID-19 pandemic, Rivera took to the airwaves and social media to educate any number of audiences about heart health. He helped Univision keep people informed during the pandemic, notably via a Q&A segment on morning show Despierta América, where viewers could ask questions about the ongoing coronavirus crisis. He remains one of the most respected voices out there.
