Gabriela Cabello is a Senior Research Analyst at Cabello Associates. She leads public health/quality of life research and analyses focusing primarily on developing policy approaches to community health, aging in place, the opioid epidemic, monitoring and managing chronic conditions, and partnerships with faith communities. Along with research, Gabriela manages relationships, supports, and project timelines for external stakeholders including state- and city-level agencies, local nonprofits, national health associations, and community health organizations.
Before joining Cabello Associates, Gabriela worked at the University of Washington School of Medicine Department of Surgery and the Harborview Injury Prevention Research Center in Seattle, WA, where she focused on the impact of nutritional counseling on post-operative patient outcomes. Gabriela also investigated different mechanisms of cell aging while working in the Department of Biology at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD. Prior, Gabriela worked with the American Chemical Society and the Indiana University School of Medicine, where her proteomic analysis research resulted in scientific publication. These opportunities opened Gabriela’s eyes to the level of skill necessary to develop innovative approaches to studying chronic and acute conditions.
Gabriela serves as a core volunteer mentor for Project Stepping Stone of Indiana, an educational advocacy organization for top Latino high school students. She also volunteers as a clerk at Gennesaret Free Clinics, where she assists in providing dignified medical care to the homeless and low-income of Indianapolis. Gabriela has previously served as a volunteer for Riley Hospital’s Maternal Addiction Recovery Program, Johns Hopkins Centro Sol clinic, and Alivio Medical Center.

Gabriela’s memberships include Prospanica – Indianapolis, SACNAS (Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science), and the Lambda Epsilon Mu Honor Society.
Gabriela believes technical expertise, empathy, and cultural awareness are necessary to provide patients with the highest quality care possible as well as improve health and educational disparities across communities. She savors opportunities to collaborate with others to improve health and wellbeing while operating under an ethos of compassion.
