Elizabeth Aguilera - Health Journalism Fellow
I cover Community Health for Southern California Public Radio/KPCC 89.3 in Los Angeles. My focus is on health care access and disparities in low-income and diverse communities across the region. I joined KPCC two years after a great career as a print reporter covering immigration and demographics, business topics and urban affairs and just about everything in between.
In 2013 my work on the cross-sex trafficking of girls and young women for the San Diego Union-Tribune won a Best of the West Award. Previously, I covered urban affairs, immigration, and business during a seven-year run at the Denver Post, and I've also worked for the Orange County Register and Long Beach Press-Telegram.
The focus of my work has been on the intersection of where people and policy meet.
I am a graduate of Pepperdine University and USC’s Annenberg School. Home is on the eastside with my husband and our two dogs, Peyton and Elway.
