Healthcare executive Margaret Lapiz is working directly with over 100 community leaders to create an integrated hub for improving health outcomes and economic opportunities for farmworkers in California. Under One Roof is a unique model demonstrating how systems change and development can be genuinely community-led, ensuring an equitable approach to health and well-being for those historically underserved.

I grew up the child of immigrant farmworkers, and spent every summer of my youth in the fields. I knew my venture would be devoted to farm-working families and communities.
