Dr. Jeffrey Reynoso is the Executive Director of the Latino Coalition for a Healthy California (LCHC)—the State’s leading health policy organization advocating for health equity of California’s Latinx community. In his role, he is responsible for strategic leadership and external relations, fundraising and financial management, organizational development, and delivering on policy advocacy and programmatic initiatives. For over a decade, he has worked on health equity and social justice issues spanning academia, government, and non-profit sectors at local, state, and national levels. Most recently, he was a Doctoral Fellow at Kaiser Permanente designing innovative programs to address food insecurity in the Southern California region. Dr. Reynoso holds a Doctor of Public Health (DrPH) from Harvard University, a Master of Public Health (MPH) from UC Berkeley, and a BA from UCLA.

Dr. Reynoso currently serves as a Board Member for the Insure the Uninsured Project (ITUP). He has also been tapped to serve on multiple advisory boards, including Advisory Member to the CA Department of Public Health (CDPH) Community Vaccine Advisory Committee, Governor Gavin Newsom’s Master Plan for Aging (MPA) Equity Workgroup and Task Force on Alzheimer’s Prevention and Preparedness Brain Trust, CA Health Interview Survey (CHIS) at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, and CA Initiative for Health Equity & Action (Cal-IHEA) at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. Dr. Reynoso has been quoted on issues ranging from health policy, public health, and Latinx health in CalMatters, Los Angeles Times, Politico, Sacramento Bee, and the Wall Street Journal.

He is a son of immigrants from Mexico and grew up in California’s Central Valley and North San Diego County. Growing up in a working-class immigrant family, he experienced firsthand the systemic barriers to equal opportunity for all and he believes that the future health and economic success of California is tied to achieving health equity for the Latinx community.
