As a fellow in the  CHCF Health Care Leadership Program, Dr. Wei An Lee, an endocrinologist at Los Angeles County+University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center, developed a medical innovation incubator that aimed to reduce the fragmented care so commonly received by patients with chronic disease. His project contributed to the establishment of a weekly farmers market featured in the video below.

The farmers market is open to staff, patients and the community at large.
