Making a Difference in the San Joaquin Valley

Professor Anna Song

There is no single solution to the health problems facing society, but the Public Health researchers at UC Merced are working to address some of the pressing issues facing the people of the San Joaquin Valley (SJV) of California. Researchers at UC Merced strive to ensure that health research focuses on problems and issues that are high priorities in the SJV, is conducted in a way that is acceptable to the community and providers, takes a participatory approach that builds capacity in the community, is translated into practice and/or policy, and is communicated to key stakeholders to increase health literacy.
