Sylvia Rivera

I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and later moved to Florida. After completing my undergraduate training at the University of Florida, I then pursued my dream of living in the Big Apple. Subsequently, I earned my medical degree at New York University School of Medicine, and proceeded to complete my Internal Medicine Residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Following this, I undertook a fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Having gained invaluable experience, I returned to Santa Barbara where I have been dedicated to serve the local community of Santa Barbara and surrounding areas since 2016.
