Interview Project members collaboratively create engaging questions that allow patients to express various aspects of their lives, ranging from their favorite hobbies to their opinions about systemic health disparities. The goal of this committee is to hear and understand individuals’ experiences and identify their resource needs, while also exploring structural barriers and collecting public health information to be shared by our Media Activism Project members. Interview project members are generally comfortable around a camera and are prepared to treat the interviewed patients and medical professionals with the sensitivity and respect that is crucial to our mission. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, phone interviews and zoom calls are a vital method of communication between patients and SOS.


Media Activism project mebers are entrusted with presenting patients' stories through anecdotal, informative, and educational writing pieces as well as informative visuals. In addition, this team is responsible for composing blog posts, podcast edits, and educational materials that illustrate SOS's mission and share insights into health inequity. Members work closely with Interview project committees in order to successfully establish narratives about the lived experiences of the patient or medical professional that are true to their perspectives and values. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Media Activism project members developed a podcast that features topics in medicine that showcase the importance of access and inclusivity of marginalized people.


Outreach project members serve as the health education core of our organization. Members of this committee employ strategies to increase our presence within the Los Angeles community by contacting schools, health fairs, and other community organizations. The educational programs created by Outreach projects are utilized to empower students to advocate for their own health and secure their wellbeing. Members assist in maintaining relationships with our nonprofit community partners, as well as hosting large-scale educational events around Los Angeles. Members will focus on refining our Health Literacy program and continue to present it to high schools and community centers (so far, we have reached over 500 students across 5 LAUSD schools!).
