Luz María Alvarez


Luz María was born in Chile. She studied Nursing at the University of Chile, where she graduated with maximum distinction.

She has worked in public and private health institutions and began working initially in the emergency department and later in Critical Patient Units.

She worked for 10 years in the Vascular Brain Unit, which gave her the opportunity to develop specific knowledge in the care and treatment of patients with acute stroke and subsequent care. But the most important thing for her is the work not only with the patient but with her family and social environment.
Being part of the Angels Initiative allows you to help and make a difference in the way you face this pathology.
She believes that it is possible to change the paradigms and move from the resignation of those who suffer a stroke and improve the health care of their country, to give Life a chance.
