Student Reflection, 7/28/14
"This week we're doing the PSA. Our PSA was about how everything we eat affects our health. I learned that if I eat a burger, fries, and a soda, it would take me 6 whole hours to burn off all the calories. We also worked out with Ms. Brandi. We ran, did pushups, and sit ups. After, Chef Quells made us a healthy salad."

The United States Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health, in a 2009 report stated, the death rate for African Americans was higher than Whites for heart diseases, stroke, cancer, asthma, influenza and pneumonia, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, and homicide.
In response to the health crises impacting communities of color, SJLI with funding from The California Wellness Foundation has developed a five-week, hands-on internship and training fellowship. A Fellow wrote the preceding journal entry during his Urban Health Fellowship training.
Photos from the Fellowship program can be found in the SJLI gallery.
