The Champions in Health Care luncheon hosted by the Pacific Coast Business Times was quite the success! Mil Familias (, an SDRI project, was awarded the 2018 “Healthy Communities Champion” title and was formally recognized by the Pacific Coast Business Times, Santa Barbara Board Members, the United States Congress and the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores-Consulado de México (Mexican Embassy).

Anthony Castillo, Treasurer on the SDRI Board, did an excellent job representing Mil Familias. He conveyed the true vision of Mil Familias and the dedication SDRI has to supporting the Latino community through and around Santa Barbara/Ventura County.
