In the health care world, women make 80% of health care buying decisions and represent 65% of the health care workforce.

About Therese Rodriguez, Apicha CEO

Since 1997 Therese Rodriguez has led Apicha Community Health Center, a nationally recognized model of HIV services for Asians and Pacific Islanders. Rodriguez spearheaded efforts for Apicha to become a federally qualified health center in 2015 so the nonprofit could broaden its scope of services.

With its expanded mission, Apicha CHC now provides primary care and mental health services to vulnerable populations, especially Asians and Pacific Islanders, the LGBT community and those with HIV/AIDS.
