Marvin is an Oakland resident and son of immigrants from La Union, Philippines. He formerly served as a health navigator with Street Level Health Project’s Health Access Program and is honored to continue supporting the organization as a board member.
For the last decade, Marvin has worked in community health centers across the country, spearheading initiatives to expand access to care for individuals affected by homelessness, incarceration, and forced migration. Through these experiences, he has witnessed the change that is possible when reimagining systems of care in solidarity with communities that have been historically marginalized.
Currently he serves as a resident family doctor at LifeLong Medical Care, where he takes care of whole families from infancy to end-of-life care. He hopes to accompany each patient on their journey to realize aliveness and peace, to better know his community, and in turn himself.
