at Independence LIVE

1919 Market Street, 2nd Floor 

Women International Leaders of Greater Philadelphia (WIL) continues its education programming with A Multidisciplinary Approach to Community Health and Wellness featuring speaker Alexandra Wolkoff from South Philadelphia’s Puentes de Salud.  The program explores various aspects of the Puentes history and model for service delivery, as well as the potential that emerges from a collaborative team of dedicated practitioners spanning nursing, law education, art, medicine and mental health.  Puentes de Salud (Bridges of Health) serves the rapidly growing Latinx immigrant population of Philadelphia and surrounding counties through high-quality health care, education programs and community building initiatives.

Alexandra Wolkoff

Alexandra Wolkoff is the Director of Education at Puentes de Salud, overseeing education initiatives for children from early childhood through adolescence and their families, striving to foster positive, holistic youth and community development in direct collaboration with families.  In the last two years she has also served as the liaison to the  Center for Peace and Global Citizenship at Haverford College, where she co-teaches a class in conjunction with the Spanish, Health Studies, and Education Departments to foster increased alignment and partnership with immigrant-serving organizations and collaboratives.
