The The Latino Health Innovation Alliance (LHIA) Fiesta

Community building | Social determinants of health | Meeting people where they are

LHIA and DDLM are proud to partner in the Los Angeles Día de la Mujer (DLM / The Latino Coalition for Health Equity Fiesta. The event is designed to meet people where they are with the help of trusted messengers to forge lasting partnerships to address health disparities.

Opportunities include:

- Health screenings

- Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) & Behavioral Health screenings

- Referrals to connect patients with community resources, clinical and social service providers, such as homeless shelters, benefit navigators, workforce development agencies, behavioral health providers, and food pantries.

- Collaborate with community-based organizations to ensure that SDoH needs are addressed.

- Capture data to measure the health fiesta’s impact and to provide direction for advocacy and investment

Connect individual patients

- Demonstrate areas of inequity and need in the community

- Track patient progress and receive feedback from partners to ensure care and services are received.

Healthcare has been focused on patients coming to established clinics to receive the resources and care they need, ignoring the barriers they often face. When we can go to communities, we identify tangible next steps to address patients' SDoH and reduce health inequities.

Although many of these individuals qualify for and have enrolled in state-funded health programs, even the most basic healthcare needs may still go unmet due to the inability to access clinics, lack of transportation to scheduled appointments, and the ability to navigate healthcare systems.

The Health Equity Fiesta will have food, music, and entertainment, with partnering organizations staffing tables to provide information and resources to the community. That is why we have partnered with local health organizations, public health, community-based organizations, healthcare clinics, and community members to help to bridge these care gaps. We will be screening community members for SDoH using the Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients' Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE), a tool that is used to connect the community with CBOs that can address problems related to Income (employment, food insecurity, utilities, health insurance, income assistance/ public benefits, transportation), Housing (housing instability, substance use), Education (child care), Legal (immigration status, legal assistance), and Safety (community and domestic violence).

We invite you to join as a community member or as a partner to leverage a cross-sector collaboration that will create ongoing data-driven programming to improve the health, well-being, and equity of the community.
