Five Los Angeles County health care organizations — Providence, UCLA Health, Keck Medicine of USC, Dignity Health and Cedars-Sinai — have unveiled a campaign urging their community to seek timely access to medical assistance. The BetterTogether.Health project, with the tagline #WeLoveAHealthyLA, features 11 mosaics of local Angelenos – including NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – who received life-saving preventive care to help them overcome their health challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. The group plans to further push the effort through billboards, radio and TV stations, buses, malls, newspapers, magazines and social media.
