Only statewide multicultural health advocacy organization in California. Founded in 1992 by four ethnic partner organizations in aftermath of Rodney King. Mission: to eliminate health disparities by advocating for public policies to address the health needs of communities of color.
To provide policy and advocacy knowledge and skills to residents committed to caring for the underserved. To provide a venue for residents to reflect on and connect patient experiences with larger policy issues. To build a partnership between CPEHN and SFGH- based residency programs so that: Residents have access to CPEHN’s legislative, administrative, community mobilization and media advocacy expertise, and CPEHN develops relationships with physician advocates who can partner with CPEHN on press conferences, op-ed pieces, policy briefs and legislative testimony.

“I cannot over-emphasize the benefit of working with an established non-profit advocacy organization, rather than striking out on my own.... As I look back on the experience, one of the main take-home lessons is just how effective it can be to partner with a knowledgeable advocacy organization whose mission matches my own values and beliefs. I feel like I have been given a roadmap for a very effective, longitudinal way to stay active in public policy, while also being a busy clinician.” - Denise Connor, PGY3
