Central Coast Voices: My community, Our health
Mi Gente, Nuestra Salud translated from Spanish means, “My community, Our health.” Research shows that expanding opportunities for healthcare benefits everyone. As the pandemic has shown, our health is only as good as that of our most vulnerable community members. Mi Gente, Nuestra Salud, which is a "people's movement for health ownership," aims to do this by empowering people from minoritized groups to govern the resources, education, advocacy, and access points that shape good health.
Join Fred Munroe as he speaks with guests involved with Mi Gente, Nuestra Salud, or the Santa Maria People's Movement for Health, Dr. Mario Espinoza-Kulick, MA, PhD, Co-Principal Investigator for Mi Gente, Nuestra Salud and inaugural Ethnic Studies Faculty at Cuesta College, Cristina Macedo, MSW, Coordinator for the Mobile Health Unit at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly), and Irma Torres, a student at Cal Poly involved in the project. They will discuss how they are working to empower people to combat the systematic racism and the other factors that violate the fundamental human right to the highest attainable standard of health.
You are invited to listen, learn and participate in the conversation, between 1-2 pm. Call in and be part of the discussion at (805) 549-8855 or email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
