SERVICE ACADEMY WORKSHOP: If you are a high school student who lives in the 40th Congressional District and is interested in attending a U.S. service academy, I strongly encourage you to attend my informational workshop on Saturday, September 12th, from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM at the Downey City Library.  (Registration will open at 8:30.)  The service academies provide a free college education in return for five years of military service as a commissioned officer following graduation.  At this FREE workshop, students, parents and college advisors can learn about the academy requirements, including the application process for receiving a nomination from me.  You will also be able to hear from representatives from the five academies – the U.S. Military Academy (West Point), U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy – as well as current students and parents of current students at these academies.  I hope to see you at this workshop!

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY: Want to learn how the federal government works?  Are you interested in pursuing a career in public service?  Then apply to my district office’s internship program!  My district office in Commerce is seeking motivated and dedicated college-level interns to help my office serve the 40th Congressional District this fall.  Residents of the 40th District are encouraged to apply, but those living outside the district may also be considered. If you or someone you know is interested, please submit a cover letter, resume, and three professional references to gloria.rodriguez@mail.house.gov no later than Friday, September 4.  Read this flyer for additional information.  I hope to see some of you in my office soon!

Thanks to Woodcraft Rangers CEO Chris Johnson for visiting my office to talk about the learning programs his organization offers for youth in the 40th District! #WoodcraftRangers works with 19 of the district’s schools to offer a wide range of afterschool and summer programs for young people. And these programs are clearly helping our kids excel in the classroom – participants in the Woodcraft Rangers’ NVISION Multimedia program have an 81% high school graduation rate! It’s critical for us to give our children the best possible start in life, and I’m glad that organizations like Woodcraft Rangers are helping students to reach their full potential.

I appreciated the chance to take a tour of HealthCare Partners’ center in East LA and get a first-hand look at how the facility provides care to its patients. The tour gave me an opportunity to speak with administrators, doctors, and patients about HealthCare Partners’ philosophy of coordinated care, and how this system can provide better health outcomes at lower costs. The HealthCare Partners model of care takes responsibility for almost all of a patient’s medical needs, including primary care visits, specialty physician visits, and hospital services.

Great to hear that Los Angeles has been chosen as the U.S. candidate to bid for the 2024 #SummerOlympics! We proved our ability to host superb Olympics in 1932 and 1984, and our city is ready to accept this honor again. Let's bring the #Olympics back to LA, and show the world why we're so proud to call Los Angeles our home! #LA2024
