My Story

This year marks Carol Brown's 50th year of service to low-income children and families in Alameda County. Carol's primary focus on life has been to open doors to health care services for children and youth who lack access to these resources. This focus has contributed to her role as an advocate at both the state and local level. Carol was a moving force behind The Code Blue Report, which lead to the creation of the Health Care Program for Children in Foster Care. This Program places public health nurses in all county child welfare agencies and probation departments. Carol helped plan and implement the Alameda County Assessment Center. In her role with The State Foster Care Task Force, Carol works to reduce health care barriers for foster children and youth.
