Stroger Medical Advocate
Victoria Vazquez is the Stroger Medical Advocate at Rape Victim Advocates, and works out of the Stroger Satellite office, located in Fantus Health Clinic. In her short time at RVA she has made a huge impact in creating more visibility on RVA services within the Cook County Health and Hospitals System, as well as in RVA’s partner hospitals. Victoria serves on the Medical Subcommittee of the Attorney General’s Task Force on Improving the Investigation and Prosecution of Sex Crimes, where she is committed to ensuring survivors voices are represented in accessing health care and treatment related to sexual assault and evidence collection that is comprehensive and supportive. She obtained a bachelor’s of social work from Lewis University (accredited by NASW). She comes to RVA with a background in domestic violence advocacy where she assisted women and children in healthy independent lifestyle changes through crisis intervention, case management and shelter access. Knowing she always wanted to support others, RVA was a perfect career choice for her.
