Cultiva La Salud is dedicated to creating health equity in the San Joaquin Valley by fostering changes in communities that support healthy eating and active living. Cultiva La Salud is among a growing number of programs in the nation who use a policy and environmental change approach to help communities live healthy lives. In Merced, our Program Manager Claudia Corchado has worked diligently to mobilize parents to get involved in their local school landscape through leadership training and placement into various school site councils while engaging local school boards in efforts to advocate for parent/student educational and health needs. Whether it’s a joint-use project between community residents and available facilities to host active lifestyle programming like Zumba classes and healthy dieting instruction, establishing safe routes to schools, or working closely with our local school wellness committees on providing safe drinking water for all children in schools, you can be Claudia and her team are at the forefront of the efforts!
