Loretta Jones, ThD, MA, founder of the Community Faculty program at CDU, recently received the Honorable Diane E. Watson Community Service Award and spoke at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, on August 7.  The convening body is the 3rd Global Officials of Dignity (G.O.D.) Awards and 2nd WCH Humanitarian Summit produced by We Care for Humanity (WCH) in collaboration with the UN Permanent Mission of Republic of Trinidad and Tobago and Visionary Empowerment.

Dr. Jones addressed the issue of health disparities, an issue she has dedicated her life’s work to.  She is the founder and CEO of Healthy African American Families II (HAAFII.)

Healthy African American Families II is a non-profit, community serving agency, on a mission to improve the health outcomes of the African American, Latino and Korean communities in Los Angeles County by enhancing the quality of care and advancing social progress through education, training, and collaborative partnering with community, academia, researchers and government.


Dr. Jay Vadgama, vice president of Research and Health Affairs, has collaborated with Dr. Jones for many years.

“Loretta has brought a community perspective to research in a way no other researcher has,” he said.

“ Also, she has published more than many, in the top research journals nationwide. Loretta is an outstanding mentor for our faculty and students engaged in Community Partnered Participatory Research.”
