New FSPH Student Feedback Form

This link leads to an always-open form for students to share ideas, questions, or concerns (outside of formal grievances) to be monitored by the PHSA board. We hope this will allow both PHSA and OSS to recognize issues that are impacting students at a broader scale and develop appropriate responses on an ongoing basis. Once we are back in-person, we will post flyers with a QR code to this form throughout the hallways of CHS for easy access.

PHSA 2020 and 2021 Survey Summaries

Hi everyone! As we start Winter quarter, PHSA will start planning for this year’s student survey. We have worked with the Office of Student Services on summarizing key actions taken as a result of the 2020 and 2021 survey and focus groups. If you’d like more detail on past surveys, please see the attached slide decks from each year and reach out to phsa.fsph@gmail.com with any questions. We’ve also included a copy of the executive summary which was shared via email.

Joint PHSA-HPMSA Statement on Sweeps at Echo Lake Park

From the statement:

Echo Park Lake (EPL) has been home to many unhoused individuals for years. Mitch O’Farrell,  District 13 City Councilman aims to change this through the heavily criticized  CARE+ Clean Up that was reinstated by the LA City Council against CDC guidelines.

Sweeps displace and sever connections between the unhoused community and non-profits, making it more difficult to provide them services. Of the 15,000 Project Roomkey promised, only 2,261 rooms are operational and 1,724 rooms are occupied, not enough for those who are displaced (LA County COVID-19 Update).
