Having a workforce that understands the community leads to better health outcomes for patients.
At La Clínica de La Raza, we are always thinking strategically about how to grow and sustain our workforce development efforts. Since 2015, La Clínica has partnered with Bay Area Youth Agency Consortium to place AmeriCorps members at La Clínica’s eight School-Based Health Centers.
Since 1973, La Clínica’s commitment to ensuring the future of community health has meant training and recruiting future generations of culturally and linguistically competent behavioral health professionals.
For many transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, barriers to better health can come in the form of lack of culturally competent providers or previous experiences in discriminatory and hostile clinic environments. To address this, La Clínica opened TRIUMPH in October 2017 that offers a gender affirming model of care and creates a welcoming medical home for transgender communities in order to increase access to comprehensive health care services.
