BACHAC Hosts Soul Stroll 2023
The Bay Area Community Advisory Council (BACHAC) hosted Soul Stroll on May 20. This was its first outside event since 2019 due to the pandemic. This annual family-friendly festival encourages community members to engage in physical activities including walking, running, or biking for one, three, or five miles. The event also includes a health and wellness fair. This year’s Soul Stroll Ambassador was Feminista Jones, an author and activist who spoke about health disparities at the opening VIP event on May 19. She also rallied walkers to the finish during the event.
Strengthening Equity Across SMC Health!
On May 10, SMC Health’s Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) convened for the 2023 retreat. GARE consists of staff who champion and forward equity from various departments across SMCH.
