UCLA Pilipinos for Community Health  webinar platform hosts Striving for Health Equity: A Panel on Minority Women’s Health
Established in 1989, Pilipinos for Community Health (PCH) at UCLA has constantly advanced its efforts to educate and provide health services to the socio-economically disadvantaged community of the Greater Los Angeles area. While addressing health issues that are prominent in the Pilipino community, we also acknowledge that these health problems are common in many other underserved communities, and so we choose to serve every recipient, regardless of nationality. With the health field as its outlet for service, PCH serves various groups at the university, local, and international levels. Through its three main components of (1) Community Outreach, (2) Preventive Health, and (3) Pre-Health Advising and Mentorship, PCH aims to help the community make wise health decisions and strives to provide members with valuable learning experiences.

PCH is a service project under the UCLA Community Service Commission (CSC).
