Community Advisory Group for South Los Angeles forming

Community Health Councils, on behalf of its network of coalitions and community partners, would like to announce the creation of a Community Advisory Group for South Los Angeles.

The idea to create a CAG is based on the recognition that community residents should have a say in decisions that affect where they live, work and play.  To that end, we envision this group as a place where South LA residents come together to share concerns and pose solutions to issues that impact their health and wellbeing, as well as a place where they can learn how and have the opportunity to be a champion for the rights of their communities.

 We are asking for your help in recruiting 10-12 residents to become a part of this group. 

To take part, residents must:

  • Live in one of the following South Los Angeles ZIP codes

Primary residence must be in one of the following zip codes: 90001, 90002, 90003, 90008, 90011, 90016, 90018, 90037, 90043, 90044, 90045, 90047, 90059, 90061, 90062, 90220, 90245, 90249, 90250, 90260, 90301, 90302, 90303, 90304, and 90305.

  • Be uninsured, OR on Medi-Cal or Healthy Way LA
  • Have been treated or currently a patient at a safety-net facility (any FQHC, County clinic or hospital)
  • Be at least 18 years of age by March 1, 2012

If you know of anyone, who meets the above criteria, and would be a good candidate for Community Advisory group, please pass along the attached information sheet and application, and ask them to contact me ASAP with their interest.  I can be reached at (323)295-9372 ext. 219.

Interested applicants will be invited to CHC offices for a Meet ‘N’ Greet March 12th– 21st.  

The first meeting of the CAG will take place during the week of March 26, 2012.

 

 

 

Take care!
