Migna Taveras – Director of Cultural Competency & Health Literacy

Migna Taveras focuses on improving communications between physicians and patients to promote understanding across ACP’s network of physicians, partners, and collaborators.  By promoting patient understanding, patients become empowered to learn healthy lifestyles which improves health and wellness; a fundamental key to transforming avoidable emergency room visits. 

With 15 years of experience successfully managing and devising strategic public policy agendas and government affairs programs to produce positive results, Migna has served as an advisor to impactful leaders locally and nationally.  She has assisted in negotiating New York City’s $70-billion-dollar budget, managing appropriations programs for three NYC councilmembers, and generated over $20 million in revenues for the New York City Housing Authority including a small $50,000 multi-year grant from a private foundation to fund literacy programs in Harlem. 

Migna currently serves as an adjunct professor in Health Education at the Borough of Manhattan Community College.  She is a Barnard graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Sociology, and a Masters in Advanced Management and Finance from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.
