As described in the business journal's award synopsis: UCSD's Community Pediatrics has promoted multicultural understanding among its organization by implementing a variety of training modules to create a culturally competent pediatric physician work force to meet the health needs of the diverse culture of San Diego. Further examples of multicultural achievement include educating 253,000 Latino families and 5,000 African-American families about physical activity and nutrition, as well as processing more than 10,000 applications for subsidized health insurance in 2006.
