Talking About California presents: a Special Series for Hispanic Heritage Month. Loreto Rojas and Cal Winslow host four programs, each considering an important issue in the LatinX community and beyond. This Tuesday on Part 3 of the series, hear the story of three Family Medicine Resident physicians working on the Southern border at the Chula Vista Scripps Mercy Hospital. Allison Estrada, Aisha Van Pratt Levin and Ana Ortiz talk about their jobs providing health services, inspiring youth and helping to build stronger communities that can organize and fight for their own well-being. Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month this Tuesday at 3 pm here on KZYX.
