In connection with staff-led, statewide policy initiatives, 14 communities, including Southwest Merced/East Merced County, are taking action to make where they live healthier. They’re doing this by improving employment opportunities, education, housing, neighborhood safety, unhealthy environmental conditions, access to healthy food and more.

The goal: to create places where children are healthy, safe and ready to learn. Ultimately, we’re aiming at nothing less than a transformation in the way all of us think about and support health for all Californians.

  1. Kim, what a wonderful talk you two had! I so wish we were able to assist you with sound quality, but the discussion is so well handled; you really captured her here. Best of luck with the show &c, s.

    • I now have a piece of equipment that would have been able to block out all of the sound issues. I sure wish that it was with me then. However, I just feel lucky and honored to have been able to interview Ms. Giovanni.

      Thank you for making it happen.

      Peace,
      Kim
