Project Description: We believe that access to education, healthcare, and mental health should be a right to the public. This is why Youth Health Action Alliance (YHAA), a student ran high school union, calls attention towards increasing Sonoma County’s Human Development Index score by addressing key determinants of health affecting the teenage population. Through the conferences we hold at local high schools, our vision is to progress our community’s physical and mental wellbeing by connecting teenagers to healthcare.
