Access & Quality of Healthcare

healthcare services, strengthen the healthcare safety net, and promote
the establishment of a medical home. CHC is working with safety-net

cost-effective integrated system of care in South LA as a model for the
Community Health & Education, working with local residents and stakeholders, builds and transform community assets for health promotion. The coalitions advocate for preserving and expanding open space, improving the availability and quality of food and physical activity options in one of the nation's most densely-populated and under-resourced metropolitan areas.
