Zara Marselian is the CEO and co-founder of nonprofit organizations La Maestra Community Health Centers and La Maestra Foundation. Since 1990, La Maestra Community Health Centers have grown into an award-winning Federally Qualified Health Center with more than a dozen locations in inner-city areas of San Diego County, including school-based and mobile clinics and the County’s first mobile mammography coach. Launched with one volunteer physician, La Maestra now has some 550 culturally-competent staff who guide nearly 46,000 patients per year to access healthcare and social services. Patients are low-income and under/uninsured; most are from special populations including immigrants, refugees, survivors of violent crime and those who are homeless and in recovery from addiction. Zara developed the grassroots, innovative and scalable La Maestra Circle of Care™ model, a holistic, solution-based approach to addressing the complex health and wellbeing needs of diverse emerging communities.
