The Los Angeles Urban League and UCLA formed a partnership with The California Endowment (TCE) in its philanthropic efforts to expand access to health care and promote health status improvements for all Californians. With generous support from TCE, we have been able to engage the Park Mesa Heights community in planning, executing, and analyzing data as it relates to community health research and programs within the 70-block South Los Angeles region. The support from TCE has aided in our ability to facilitate comprehensive data collection, with thoughtful interpretation of the data in order to model and measure appropriate interventions that include health care resources in the community, and access to them. Ultimately, this partnership and collaborative work with the community, has resulted in increased knowledge, as well as enhanced awareness, and positive behavior changes within the Park Mesa Heights community.
The goal of the Health Initiative is to improve the overall health and well-being of the Park Mesa Heights community. To achieve this goal, the Health Initiative is focusing on youth & family advocacy, health advocacy, and outdoor healthy living. The community will be engaged on a continual basis through a “Call to Action” plan, which will include community health assessments and programs that are designed to improve health outcomes. Through the implementation of innovative strategies, residents and consumers of the Park Mesa Heights community will achieve optimal health.
