On Saturday I was joined by the Consul General of Mexico Juan Marcos Gutierrez Gonzalez and Sheriff Lee Baca at the USC Health and Wellness Community Fair at East Los Angeles Occupational Center. The USC Civic and Community Relations Health Sciences Campus presented the free fair to the community which included informational, health screenings and community booths. This event and partnership is important as it helps connect the resources at the USC Health Campus directly with members of the community. With the participation with the many organizations that partook in the fair, residents received medical services and information that they may otherwise not have access too. There are many things that we can do on a local level to ensure that people receive medical services. I look forward to continuing our partnership so that we can bring additional services to our community.
