City Heights Health Impact an Example for the United States

More than 50 leaders from across the country visited City Heights on March 9. The group came from the Grantmakers In Health annual conference on Health Philanthropy. They stopped by the Central Avenue Mini Park, where a skate park is being built after years of advocacy from the Mid-City Community Advocacy Youth Council.

The group settled in at Copley-Price YMCA to hear panels on Mid-City CAN's Health Impact Assessment (HIA) for both Restorative Justice and the Skatepark. City Heights' residents and the partners they worked with shared their personal stories of working on these projects and how they positively impact the health of people in this community.

The panels were moderated by Bea Solis, The California Endowment, and Diana Ross, Executive Director of Mid-City CAN.

Skate Park Panelists included: Angeli Hernandez (Mid-City CAN Youth Council), Rudy Vargas (Marti Emerald’s office, San Diego City Council Member, District 9), Seth (Senior Planner, City of San Diego), and Nick Ferracone, (Senior Planner, City of San Diego).

Restorative Justice Panelists included: Mayte Benitez (Restorative Community Conferencing Specialists, National Conflict Resolution Center), Frank J. Barone (Assistant Supervising Attorney, Office of the Primary Public Defender, Juvenile Delinquency Branch), Lisa Weinreb (Deputy District Attorney, Assistant Chief, Juvenile Branch), and Sandra Rodriguez (Peace Promotion Momentum Team Community Organizer, Mid-City CAN).

Mid-City CAN would like to thank The California Endowment, Health Impact Project, and all of the attendees from the Grantmakers In Health annual conference on Health Philanthropy.
