WALNUT CREEK, CA (January 19, 2016)—We would like to thank John Muir Health and John Muir Medical Group for making a $8,700 donation to the Center for Human Development on January 14, 2016. The amount of the donation is in recognition of what would have been Dr. Martin Luther King’s 87th birthday this year. Pictured above are Executive Director David Carrillo and Dr. Taejoon Ahn, MD in front of the John Muir Outpatient Care Center in Walnut Creek.

“CHD is focused on empowering Contra Costa County communities to adapt to adversities and helping individuals realize their full potential. CHD’s efforts focus on reducing health disparities, inspiring healthier choices, conflict resolution, violence prevention and youth leadership development. The organization is equity and social justice oriented with most of their programs focusing on underserved communities, which we believe embodies the spirit of Dr. King and his life’s work. CHD plans to apply the donation to a variety of prevention activities and supportive services in low income communities.”
