Abstract/Artist Statement

The title of my project is 'South LA Latino Health: A Community-Based Approach.' This project is based on my internship experience through the UCLA Public Health Scholars Training Program. Through this CDC program, I interned at St. John’s Well Child & Family Center, an independent 501(c)(3) community health center that aims to eliminate health disparities and foster community well-being by providing and promoting the highest quality care in South Los Angeles. In this internship, I outreached to and facilitated health discussions for Los Angeles youth. I also attended meetings hosted by public health stakeholders in Los Angeles County which helped me learn about the public health system in the county. I used the information I gathered in this internship to create a podcast about the community I served through my internship. The podcast includes an overview of South LA Latino health and interviews with two individuals who are doing public health work in the community.
