"Improving Health and Social Outcomes in LA County: A Humbly Radical Proposal"

Federick Zimmerman, PhD

Fred W. and Pamela K. Wasserman Professor & Chair, Department of Health Policy & Management
UCLA Fielding School of Public Health
 
Poverty and inequality are tremendous social problems and also represent a financial loss to the economy. Reducing the waste associated with poverty in Los Angeles County will enable the region's economy to grow more rapidly, producing social and economic benefits for the community to share. Dr. Frederick Zimmerman, Chair of Health Policy & Management, is one of the leaders of the Engage LA project which hopes to unlock the immense potential currently trapped in unproductive crime, poverty, and poorly used resources. In this webinar, Dr. Zimmerman will clarify the project's approach to improve health, school achievement, and to reduce crime in Los Angeles.
