Center Provides Meeting Space for Health-Related Groups
The California Endowment on Thursday officially opened the Center for Healthy Communities, a compound in downtown Los Angeles that offers meeting spaces for not-for-profit health organizations, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Groups that work to improve the health of California residents through housing, neighborhood environments, jobs and access to medical care are permitted to reserve space.
The center also will serve as the endowment's headquarters. In the future, the center will house three organizations that help not-for-profit organizations secure grants, talk effectively with press and lawmakers and create more efficient budgets.
The endowment on Thursday held a two-day conference on the future of health care in California (Cleeland, Los Angeles Times, 4/7).
VOANews on Friday reported on the discussion of the uninsured at the California Endowment's inauguration of the resource center. The segment includes comments from Bob Ross, president of the endowment, and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (D) (O'Sullivan, VOANews, 4/7).
A transcript of the segment is available online. The complete segment is available online in RealPlayer.
