Xiomara Arriaran - Youth Health Action Project

Xiomara Arriaran, Youth Health Action Project

Date grant awarded: 3/11/2017

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-run high school union, calls attention towards increasing Sonoma County’s Human Development Index score by addressing key determinants of health affecting the teenage population.

Our vision is to progress our community’s physical and mental wellbeing by connecting teenagers to healthcare. Education is the platform through which we engage students about the healthcare field and equip them to return their knowledge back to their community in the form of an increased Human Development Index.
