Andrea Christina Galaviz, MD


Favorite Travel spot: My favorite travel destination is anywhere with a beach! I am happiest with my toes in the sand and I still believe mermaids are real.

Free time activity: In my free time I enjoy going on new food adventures, balancing on my yoga mat, being creative with nail polish, and dreaming about my next travel destination.  

Why U of A at South Campus : I chose U of A South Campus for my residency training because of its emphasis on learning in and giving back to rural Arizona communities, and because I love everything about Tucson!

How do you envision your future in family medicine and what are you most passionate about? I also am passionate about Global Health and have left pieces of my heart in Tanzania, India, Central America, and Nepal. I decided to practice Family Medicine so that I might always be of service to underserved populations around the world.
