Dr. Yohualli Balderas-Medina Anaya immigrated to Southern California from Mexico at the age of four. Her background has deeply shaped her goals as a physician. She is passionate about improving the health and healthcare of underserved and marginalized communities by utilizing innovative public health programs, advocacy and public policy and, by means of physician workforce diversity in order to achieve health equity for all, contributing to the California’s Physician Shortage brief.

She is a graduate of Occidental College, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Biology. She received a dual degree Doctor of Medicine and Master of Public Health from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California (USC). She completed her residency training at the UCLA Family Medicine Residency Program and subsequently joined the faculty. Her efforts in supporting the health, safety, and wellbeing of immigrant and undocumented communities, includes a focus on student success here at UCLA, including those in pursuit of medical education. Her interests in diversity and inclusion, and social justice in medicine led her to develop a multidimensional outreach program at Title I high schools in the neighborhood where our county clinic is located, which is geared towards empowering a diverse and largely underserved group of students.
