We’ve given you the tools now it’s up to you to put your preparedness to the test. How will you exercise your disaster plan?

Policy Cafe Series

Policy Café, October 17th

20 Years of Partnership: Advancing LA County Health

Please join us for our next Policy Cafe with Zev Yaroslavsky, L.A. County Supervisor, Third District.

During a career in public life spanning nearly four decades, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky has been at the forefront of Los Angeles County’s biggest issues, from transportation to the environment to health care to the arts. He has been a pioneering advocate for the region’s homeless population and has played a key role in efforts to reform the county’s law enforcement agencies.


In the area of social and human services, Yaroslavsky has launched a series of groundbreaking initiatives that have measurably improved life for individuals and families on the margins of society. For example, he is bringing innovative school-based health clinics to largely working-class neighborhoods of the San Fernando Valley, where many residents are living below the poverty line and rarely seek medical attention. One of those is based on the Sun Valley Middle School campus, while two more are being constructed at Monroe and San Fernando high schools. Yaroslavsky also has been credited with helping to restore the lives of the region’s chronically homeless through his widely praised Project 50 program and its spinoffs, which have provided permanent supportive housing for hundreds of people who’ve been identified as most likely to die on the streets.

When: 8:30am October 17, 2014
