Highlights

Mariachi Mixteco

Mariachi Mixteco was formed in 1998 and has grown every year since then. Now an internationally recognized ensemble, Mariachi Mixteco has traveled in the United States and abroad, taking their love of Mexican culture to conferences, concerts, and competitions in the U.S. and Mexico. Comprised of young adults from the ages of 15 to 25 (currently), Mariachi Mixteco is dedicated to continuing Mexico's cultural traditions.


Art Exhibition by Tony Ram "Desert Aperture"

Antonio Ramirez has worked as a journalist since 2012, at the age of 17. He since has written several magazines regarding local Imperial Valley culture and has contributed to several newspapers, photographed and interviewed a great portion of the Imperial Valley in his personal project Humans of Imperial Valley. His personal work is influenced by the unique population of the Imperial Valley, and his hispanic/mexican roots further encourage his professional work and inspire him to aid others to reach their full potential while growing alongside him.


Walgreens "Free Flu Shots"

Immunizations are just one way Walgreens is expanding their role with patients and the community. Walgreens has launched a number of community education programs targeting diabetes awareness, HIV/AIDS, blood pressure screenings and smoking cessation. Pharmacy teams also offer valuable assistance to seniors every year with the Medicare Part D enrollment process. In addition to offering these services in the stores, Walgreens pharmacists are also out in communities conducting school talks about the profession of pharmacy, assisting in community health fairs and participating in community outreach efforts focused on health and safety. Studies show that in-person interaction with a pharmacist reduces health care costs through fewer complications and hospitalizations.
