HHSA and SDSU Form New Partnership to Address Community Issues and Strengthen the Workforce | Video

A deeper working partnership was celebrated today between the County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) and San State University College of Health and Human Services (CHHS). Diego. The two organizations have signed a formal agreement to tackle major health and social service issues affecting the region, including housing insecurity. The new Live Well Center for Innovation and Leadership will also streamline workforce development by offering internships and providing unique, hands-on cross-training opportunities for SDSU students. This will help bridge the gap between academics and real-life experience while creating a skilled local workforce ready to transition into county jobs.

This partnership is the first of its kind in California and builds on a history of successful collaborations between the university and HHSA. In the past few years alone, HHSA and SDSU have worked together in a nationwide effort to raise awareness of the COVID-19 vaccine and increase testing availability in underserved communities. SDSU public health experts also worked closely with HHSA to design a contact tracing program focused on high-risk populations. Earlier in the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 200 SDSU nursing students, in coordination with HHSA, volunteered to administer COVID-19 vaccines.
