Alma Hernandez is a strong advocate who fights for health care access for all. She was born and raised in south Tucson and she earned both her bachelors of science and master's degrees in public health from the University of Arizona, which she put to work advocating for improved health outcomes for all people. She has served on the Mental Health Committee of Interfaith Community Services, and she fought hard against the GOP tax bill and the repeal of the affordable care act by leading Arizonans United for Healthcare. She worked as the program director of Bridging the Gap, helping women who are living with HIV and AIDS in Southern Arizona, and has worked in developing nations such as Ghana and Panama providing medical and public health services through free clinics. She also has advocated for Arizona students with the Arizona Students Association, pushing for funding and support of the state’s three public universities and community colleges.

"It is clear from [Alma's] background that she is committed to helping others, and with her public health education and experience she would be great for any health care and insurance-related issues that impact families and communities. As a member of Moms Demand Action, she would be a great voice for reasonable gun laws that protect people, not gun manufacturers."–Gloria from Tucson
