Hello, my name is Raquel Silva.
I am a health educator at CAPK CalFresh Healthy Living, located in Bakersfield, CA.
One action I could take toward a systems approach in my work is by creating a list of community partners to assess their strengths and needs of improvement, as well as collaborating with new partners to support each other.

Hello, my name is Yulie and I am a community nutrition educator under UCCE CalFresh Healthy Living in Yolo County. One action I could take towards a systems approach in my work is to look at community partners as assets to my work. By identifying different partners and how they fit into this puzzle, we can work together collaboratively to create change across all levels of systems.

Hi! My name is Jen Hardee and I work for Pitt County Health Department in NC. I look forward to working with community partners to help make healthy food/recipes for that food available at food pantry locations and other community locations.
