Personal Biography: Evelyn Iriarte Parra, RN, MSN, is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. She earned her BSN and MSN at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. She focused her work and research on frailty and geriatric syndromes among older adults. She joined the PhD in Nursing Science at the University of Miami School of Nursing and Health Sciences in 2019. Evelyn completed the first year of the program successfully and is currently finishing the second-year courses to prepare her qualifying exam during the summer. She has been involved in various projects focused on HIV among older Latinx adults. Also, she has collaborated in several publications, including Chilean and US populations. Evelyn’s current research and development areas include geriatric care, HIV prevention, and HIV self-management, focusing on older community-dwelling Hispanic/Latinx.

She is also looking to continue contributing to this undeveloped research line once she returns to her country.
