Fresno Building Healthy Communities
Sandra Celedon is the President and Chief Executive Officer for Fresno Building Healthy Communities and is responsible for guiding and supporting multi-sector, diverse stakeholder collaboration in order to foster and encourage thriving communities where all children and families can live healthy, safe and productive lives.
She received her degree in Public Health from California State University, Fresno. Sandra spent her college years traveling to Egypt, Ghana, Trinidad & Tobago and Brazil to learn about international health systems and policies and worked in numerous public health positions before becoming the Outreach and Enrollment Programs Manager at Clinica Sierra Vista in Fresno. Over the years, she has developed a number of public health programs with special focus on prevention and primary care access.
Sandra adheres to the public health principles which recognize that all people must have access to the resources necessary for health and that people and their physical environment are interdependent; when one is damaged it will have an adverse effect on the other. This is why she dedicates herself to building healthy communities.
In addition to working as a public health practitioner, Sandra serves as a member of the Central Valley Health Policy Institute Advisory Board, the Fresno Police Department’s Southeast Community Advisory Council, and the Fresno Community Alliance Editorial Board. In her free time, she enjoys watching documentaries and spending time with her partner Maurice, son Ernesto, and dog Lola.
