The “Helping U Help Your Community” contest has entered its final week of the public voting period and the David Geffen School of Medicine and UCLA Health need your help to select four winning projects that aim to transform health in the Los Angeles region. Each winning project will receive $20,000 in funding to support its efforts.

The contest provides support to community-partnered academic research and service-learning projects that address the most critical health needs of Los Angeles residents in innovative and effective ways. The contest also aims to showcase UCLA faculty and community partners who devote their careers to identifying creative solutions to some of the most challenging barriers to good health in the community.

A panel of UCLA-appointed judges identified 10 of the most innovative proposals. Now members of the community can vote on the final four until Sunday, June 18.

Cast a vote for up to four entries from the 10 finalists: Camp Gibbous, “Let’s Play Outside Again!”, BrainSPORT Brain Health Pilot, Urban Health Fellowship, Social media and vending machines to increase HIV testing, Mobile Clinic Project at UCLA, TEENs helping TEENs – Connect, talk, get help, UCLA Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Program, Infection Prevention Outreach for Skilled Nursing Facilities, and Passport to Wellness.
