Research for Good

Making a Difference

Committed to global and social issues, Alicia’s latest endeavor is to do Research for Good during her travels. Here are a few of her adventures…

Helping Refugees

Several years ago, Alicia was in Vienna for ‘holiday’ and ended up spending days and evenings helping refugees who were passing through the Vienna train station (Hauptbahnhof) with an organization called Train of Hope.

Women’s Workshop in Mérida

After completing her doctoral research in the Yucatán, Alicia vowed she’d “return to the field” and give back to those who helped her. In 2010,  Alicia led a  Women’s Workshop in Mérida, Yucatán. She offered a Valentine’s Day (Día de la Amistad) Workshop as a thank you to women and colleagues who participated in her research on sexuality, gender and HIV/AIDS.
