Working with our neighbors to build a strong community

Health and Safety

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

The Keck School of Medicine of USC, the School of Pharmacy, the Ostrow School of Dentistry, and programs in the Occupational Sciences and Physical Therapy provide state-of-the-art health care to the communities they serve.

Community programs such as Fit Families, the Oral Health Center and Community Health Fairs increase health awareness in surrounding areas. The Mobile Dental Clinic travels the streets of our neighborhoods, providing free dental services to thousands who would otherwise go without.

Partnering with the L.A. Police Department, the L.A. Unified School District, and local residents, USC promotes a safe environment. We foster a sense of communal responsibility through programs such as Kid Watch.

We are dedicated to creating an environment where our neighbors can learn, grow, and flourish.
