Across Los Angeles and beyond, communities are working to address the social determinants of health (SDoH) through a variety of channels. Rooted in their communities and mission-driven to improve the health of the underserved, community clinics and health centers are well-positioned to advance health equity in Los Angeles County.
Follow the link below to see the results of a needs assessment conducted by CCALAC to understand what support health centers need to foster conversations and interventions around SDoH.

- Youth Policy Institute (YPI) collaboration with supermarkets for nutrition program – the grant that funded the veggie voucher pilot was USDA Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive Grant Program. There was no follow up grant. LAFPC would love to partner with interested attendees on veggie vouchers at healthy corner store projects, as they saw how effective it was (it is a matter of finding more funding). Click here for a brief case study that explains how veggie vouchers were used to successfully expand access to healthy food through the Healthy Neighborhood Market Network.
